While my EPM1 gently weeps...

    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

    Not ready to sell her yet. I'll sleep on it though :)
