    Uh oh...

    I rented an OMD last weekend, and forgot how much I like buttons and controls. Additionally, I wanted a bigger body because I want to try using some flash (getting an FL600R for my birthday). So, I sold my 2nd EPM1 for an EP3.

    At the same time, I purchased an RX100 to try it out.

    Now my poor, faithful EPM1 feels squeezed out :frown:

    She's got 6500 shutter actuations, she went back to Oly once in her youth for IBIS fix. She shows a little sign of wear on the shutter button, though still as gorgeous as ever. But when will I pick her up again?

    The one upside is that she's worth so little now on the market, that I will just keep her, and maybe it'll be one of those "boy I missed this camera" reunions in the fall.

    Still, she sits idly by for now.

    I really like my E-P3 so I can understand why you bought one - perhaps the day will come when you need something small and stealthy and can pick up that lonely little E-PM1 again. :smile:

    Yes, my E-PM1 is feeling rather lonely too (since I sprang for a silver E-M5 body). I missed more controls, and I needed the better high ISO and IBIS performance, not to mention IBIS in the viewfinder. The mini's not quite as lonely as my LX-5, but I figure it's worth more as an extra than on the resale market, so no point in selling. :eek:

    My e30 got lonely, so I HAD to buy an em5 and x100 so the ep3 could join it on the shelf. I'm giving like that. Lol
