    I can't take too much camera porn this time of the morning! Beautiful though.

    The black Pens really look great with a silver lens.

    I have both and I have been happy with both of them. Highly recommended

    Two things. Does the camera sit upright in its own with this combo? It is heavier than kit lens (yet shorter) but I find my kit lens falls forward when on a flat surface.

    Also can anyone recommend a good small bag/pouch for this combo. I have seen the case logic 200 which looks good. Any suggestions?

    No the camera does not sit upright, so I always place my E-PM2 with the 17 on a cloth or clean area to protect the lens.

    As for Bags, I use Crumpler bags, and they all work well. However, because the E-PM2 is so small, I can carry around the camera & lens attached in my jacket pocket with no problems!

    The Domke F-5XA is a nice bag for this combo that would let you also fit a second lens & a few accessories. I have a silver EPM2 and just got the 17/1.8 yesterday, so no opinion yet except to say the lens looks great, really nice construction. Can't wait to try it out!

    I know some people don't like the looks of the E-PM2, but I think it looks pretty good! I almost think it's more stylish than the E-PL5.
