    Told ya! :D





    and



    Story: Was walking around the camera street in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, popping in and out of stores when I saw a mini OM-D in a display case. I asked the awesome shopkeep (FYI: the Taiwanese people I met are incredible...such a friendly bunch!) where she got it from, and she said it was promo material...seeing my eyes light up, she looked in a drawer and gave me one. I was ecstatic.

    Hahaha...well played. ;)

    Say whaaaat? Let's see it!!! :D

    I just tried "mini OM-D" "miniature OM-D" and "promotional OM-D" and all came up with matches...I'm sure other terms would work as well. :)

    Heh I bought a silver one on E-bay... I ... just had to have it. Nice note: the lens is removable, and there are other lenses! ...but you have to buy a new camera body key chain with it, as they don't sell the lenses individually :frown:

    Not coming with lens hoods is what makes them an authentic Olympus product. Heyoooooo.

    But seriously...that looks so awesome! :D

    I had no idea there were so many of these out there!! All of yours sound awesome!!! I was hoping she'd have a black one, but all of hers were silver/black. :(

    Post pics of yours!!! I'd love to see them! :D

    Someone needs to mount a bit of glass in there, as an OVF. Peering thru the mini OMD to frame the shot on the real OMD...

    It came as a promotional. You must have missed it.

    Here's mine, from a gacha toy capsule vending machine. Just one twist and I got the one I wanted (matching my now-sold E-M5)...
