    Still have 2 that are my back ups and everyday shooters. Got into the pens because when I shot film I always preferred a small camera. Files blow up to 16×20 (despite what the pixel peepers may say) quite well. I have used these professionally.

    Recently bought an E-PL1 with the usual broken IBIS but only 433 shutter activations. Looks mint. Also bought the TTArtisan 25mm f2, which makes a great every day carry combo. I have some other vintage lenses I use with it too, and occasionally the old plastic kit lenses if I don’t feel like manually focusing for some reason.

    I couldn’t afford the EP -1 so I bought the EPL-1. What’s the comparison please?

    OMDS surely must remodel this Pen or another and compete with the Ricoh GR3. What an opportunity OMDS have to be the first MFT maker to offer a new 20 mpx urban/street model that can also be confidently employed in other contexts. Perhaps a slightly smaller Pen with a fixed 35mm lens?
    Panasonic have reportedly put the Lumix LX100 Mark 2 in mothballs. The GX9 also seems to be on ice, as is the Lumix GX880 model.
    OMDS – come on, do it !

    I just saw one at a charity shop for £50 and couldn’t believe it. Grabbed it of course! Very pleased indeed.

    A great article and lovely images, thanks for sharing!

    It goes to show how awesome these cameras are, regardless of age or model, in the right hands they are very capable indeed.
    I love my E-PL1 which shares the same 12mp sensor. I am often blown away by the images it produces.
    Long live M4/3!

    Outdated Tech. OM should come out with a new Pen with updated sensor to please the small camera customers. And while OM does that, they should come out with a new OM-1X, Pro Camera with 2 batteries, larger sensor, to handle the great long len’s such as 150-400, 150-600, 100-400, 300 F-4. That is my 2 cents worth.
