I jumped on the OM-D bandwagon very early on, and pre-ordered the EM5 as soon as they were available on Amazon. Being a huge Oly fan since the 80s and the happy user of an OM-1n for more than 20 years, I couldn't wait for the digital incarnation of one of the finest compact 35mm cameras ever built. But then I got to thinking about the fact that I did shoot happily with the Om-1n for more that 20 years, and that, before I got into :43:, I rarely suffered from GAS. And then I reminded myself that I got into :43: because it allowed me to use all the great Oly and Leica lenses I bought over the years. And that I sold off most of my Olympus DSLR gear so I could enjoy shooting with the smaller, lighter :43: gear. And now, only 16 months after switching to :43:, I really didn't need to upgrade again, especially as I am the happy owner of 3 (all second hand, 2 purchased on this forum's classifieds) Gen 1 :43: cameras, which still shoot great. So, I cancelled my pre-order for the EM5, and went out shooting with the 3 "oldies" over the last few weeks to celebrate my (temporary) return to being GAS-free. The original: the E-P1, my first :43:. Now "upgraded" with a $10 Flipbac Grip (much better handling now) and $20 Flipbac LCD viewer (saved me $400+ on buying the E-PL3 just for the fancier angle viewer). I keep the VF1 on permanently and use the E-P1 with the Panny 20mm 1.7 or the Oly 17mm 2.8. This combo has saved me repeatedly from the temptation of buying a Fuji X100 or Leica X1. My wife actually uses it more than I do for her art work. The E-PL1: I wanted a second body, and really wanted the E-P2 and VF-2 combo, but could't justify spending for the P2. Read great reviews about the PL1, and found a decent second hand price for it and a VF-2 here on the forum. I use it mostly with my legacy Olympus Pen, OM and Leica lenses (here shown with the Oly Pen F 70mm F2). The LCD has a crack, but still works, so rather than shelling out $170 to have it repaired, I just affixed an old DSLR screen protector over the LCD with black gorilla tape. My younger son now borrows it a lot to shoot macro photography of his Lego creations and Warhammer plastic model figures. I bought the G1 in August last year (again, great price on the forum classifieds) because I had a shoot that required 3 bodies. Almost sold it soon after but realized the mini-DSLR shape and substantial grip made it better than either of the Pens for handholding my longer lenses (GI below with the last of my old Oly four-thirds gear, the Zuiko 70-300mm with the Panasonic 4/3 to :43: adapter). I am sure I won't be able to use these great :43: for as long as my OM-1n, and that these Gen 1 bodies do not have many of the great features of the newer generation of :43: like the E-P3 and E-M5. But, I am happy with the photos I am taking with my stable of "oldies", and get good exhibition prints up to 11 x 14, so should be able to hold off for another couple of years (until the EM5 is being sold at deep discount by the early adopters!). Now if I could only keep my self from buying any more lenses!
