I'm not mad or anything, just really dismayed. This was the camera that brought me back into photography and made digital photography feel sensible to me. I don't really know how it happened, actually - from one minute to another, the shutter would cease to operate properly, and all I got was black frames. Given that this little warrior took a lot of abuse, I'm not too surprised, but it's a true loss even though the camera may have been superceded long ago by other parts of my kit. I still loved shooting it from time to time, period. It was small and unintrusive, and it delivered very nice looking images. Given repair prices around here being what they are, there's simply no sense in trying to get it repaired - for only a couple of Swiss francs more, I can get an E-PL7, which is exactly what I will do (I want a second body, and since I already have a detachable EVF, the E-PL7 fits the bill just fine). I was sitting on the fence about that camera for a while now anyway. I might have waited for a GX8 or something similar, but now the gap needs filling - the E-PM1 was very much my summer (and holiday) camera. I often just put a prime on it and headed out to shoot. As much as I like the LX100 with its EVF and nice zoom and the E-M10 with its very compelling handling with the 12-40mm and additional grip, I simply want a body that feels right at home with the great small primes while at the same time staying reasonably compact, pure, simple and straightforward - which was exactly what the E-PM1 did for me (and yes, I have handled the GM1 and GM5 - gorgeous, but simply too small for my liking, and furthermore, I want I.B.I.S. that really works - and I know from the E-M10 what to expect there). So it goes. R.I.P., old friend. M.
