    Thanks John,

    I'd love to get this one...but I've killed two PENs already...not sure I'd trust myself with this beauty.
    Plus my wife would shoot me (and not with a camera )
    Love to try it with my Rokkor X.

    I'm rapt with my E-M1, Matt. It had to go to the doctor about its rear wheel falling off. I had them check the lugs for fitment and clean the pre-installed gunge off the sensor. While I only bought it in late March 2015, mine was a really early serial number (internal build date was Sept 2013). IMHO it's a fantastic camera.

    It certainly looks interesting and I do like the body shape more than the pseudo dSLR style body.

    Expensive and at that price, why no environmental sealing? Still, after the price has settled, may replace my E-P3 and neat that it uses the same batteries as the OM-D E-M5.
    Cheers

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself.

    Quite pleasant on the eye. I have had a hiatus from the camera due to work commitments but hopefully will get back into it.

    I was quite excited by this camera when I first heard about it. It looked like exactly the kind of nice back up carry eveywhere camera that I'm looking for to go with my em1. But at this price and with no weather sealing it's a real disappointment. I can't really see any real advantages or the point of it, apart from the fact that it's a beautiful style statement.
    The em5 ii is the obvious choice for me rather than the Pen F.

    I am inclined to agree with Russrad on the EM5 ll being the better option.
