We're into the 8th or 9th generation of micro-four-thirds cameras now - 2008 seems so long ago!
This is a thread for all of those people still shooting with older 12 mega-pixel sensors.
If you have an E-P1/2/3, E-PL1/2/3 or E-PM1 (or G1/2, GF1/2/3/5, GH1/2) feel free to contribute.

Now my E-P1 has given up the ghost, my E-PM1 is my 12mp bestie - these were taken with the PanaLeica 25mm f1.4 which generally makes great images regardless of MP count.

Great thread! :) Thanks for creating it.
I am a m43 user since 2011, started with a GF2/14mm combo. Later I tried to change to the 16MP era, but I failed. I mean, I could not like pictures from those machines. Somehow I liked pictures from the 12MP era much better! Your pics also show how great colors, great tonal range and depth these sensors render! I still work with two cameras: the GF1 and the GF2. I acquired an LVF-1 just two weeks ago! I love to shot with these "retro" machines. I love the real metal feel of the bodies, the great user experience / interface, and of course the pictures. Panasonics weren't that great in colors like their Olympus counterparts, but I liked their "close to life" rendering and their black&white capabilities! Here are a few examples from my history:

GF1 + Olympus 45 1.8 + Olympus A200 (full frame equivalent: 135mm f3.5)

The 12MP sensor seems to have been the best on the earliest cameras, at least that is my impression. I've never had a GF1 but people really liked the output. I did own an EP1 for a while and while I didn't like the dynamic range, I did really like the JPEG output. I first entered M4/3 with a GF3, which was not a very good implementation of the 12MP sensor.

A hand held multi shot Panorama of Trona Pinnacles with LUMIX LX100 (12mp camera). While my 2 DSLRs were shooting 2 time lapse I used my back up camera to get the landscape shots and videos with the LX100. Zoom in the pic to see if you can see the 2 cameras on tripods.

I started with m4/3 back in 2010 with a Panasonic G2 and fell in love with the format. The G2 was ahead of the times in some ways being the first to market with a touch screen interface, eye sensor EVF and great control layout. The files were great but don't you dare go above ISO 400 lol.
I've moved on to other cameras since then but I kept the G2 around because I have a fondness for it I just don't get with other cameras I've owned. Just last year I decided to take it out for a shoot and the results were quite satisfactory. Granted I paired it with a fancy lens (Leica Nocticron) but at base ISO the files look quite good.

Can my Olympus E-5 play here? It's got the same E-PL1 sensor and I used to have an E-PL1 (my first m43 camera!). I love my E-5. Color and sharpness just beautiful @ low ISO!

I waited on and picked up the Panasonic GF1+20mm kit when it first came out in 2009. I didn't really know what I was doing at the time so I just shot any and everything. lol The results with this combo definitely lead me to believe that maybe there's something to the m43 format. All shots taken with the 20mm f1.7 lens.

I'll be honest, after seeing the results from the 20mm pancake I thought we were gonna see a bunch of these incredibly performing pancake type lenses come out. Unfortunately, we're here in 2018 and that hasn't been the case. :confused:

Although technically it was 2009 before Olympus appeared :)
But one from my G1
