I share your feeling

The EP5 may not be the most advanced, the most popular, the most camera for your money but for me , it's the most cherished and most admired , due to its styling and functional design, not unlike the Pen F before it

I've owned many Olympus from from the film days till today and the E1 and EP5 stand out in my books: the E1 for best all around camera of its time, the EP5 for best styling

The only thing I'd wish in a EP7 would be a builtin EVF a la NEX on the RHS of the body and that'd be perfect

No I don't own a Cooper and I concur with your assessment of its styling; I drive a Prius instead, mainly for economy and dependability reasons

Here's my collection of Pens:
