E-M1 purchasing regrets?
10 months ago

Is it ugly?  Or beautiful.

Is it too expensive?

Is it not portable?  What case to you carry it in?

I've decided to keep it.  E-M5 did not work out for me.

I used to carry a small m4/3 with the 20mm for parties.  I will keep the E-M2 for that purpose.

So can I take the E-M1 to parties and dinners?  Not really.  Or is it OK.  Is it overkill?  Or perfect.

I love the built in EVF.  Looks like glass.

I love the screen.

I love the results at 1/10s at ISO, perfect results

Should I keep the 75mm?  A wow lens.  But it feels like a lot of weight.  Or just delightful.  The results sure are.

I like using the "winner of the year."  It legitimizes spending crazy money on a camera.

Well the Olympus team sure knows how to price.  OTOH they provide value with the PL5.  So the E-M1 should be worth every penny.
