    Took it out this week, so far I'm liking it! It's quite small, but packs quite a punch. I picked up a NEX-5 around the same time, ended up returning it. The E-PM1 works for me!

    Here's are a couple snaps!

    I haven't done it yet, but I'm still considering an EPM1 + 14mm for street and walk-about. Either that or a GRD iii.

    Nice shots!

    The E-PM1 is very quick and responsive. Also once the buttons are customized, I don't really miss having the mode dial.

    Not sure, it's a structure in LA's Little Tokyo. :smile:

    That looks like the decorative tower at the entrance to Japanese Village Plaza:

    Jonathan, what led you to get the E-PM1 as backup to your E-P3? I've been pondering the E-PL3 as backup, but noticed quite a few folks on here went with the PM1.

    I only have an E-PL2, though I'm thinking I should get an E-P3 now! I got my E-PM1 used for cheap. I was actually looking for a second E-PL2 when I found the E-PM1 for sale. :smile:

    It's quite addictive, the E-P3. :smile:

    I have no clue, she looked like she had a major allergic reaction, both her eyes were hugely swollen! :eek:

    There's quite a few of us on here in the LA area. We should coordinate some sort of meet...maybe rent a model, beer and shoot some pictures!
