I know Craig Zeni on this list has a pretty nice collection of KO
cameras so you might look him up in the archives.  Also, there appears
to be a KO discussion forum here:

You might be able pick up more information there.

As to good, they were a staple of the wedding/portrait business all
through the sixties and early seventies.  I believe the only complaint
about the cameras was that the film wind system could be dodgy if you
were a ham fisted pull/pusher.

Hi there!
I have been using my father's old M4 for a while now and I love it! I 
realy enjoy the concept of range finders and I like to develop me own 
films. Lately I have been thinking of trying out a medium format camera 
and because I like range finders I have glanced at the Koni Omega or 
Rapid Omega. Do anyone have one? Are they any good? What's your general 
impression of these cameras?
