Olympus E-1
Olympus E-30
I am not sure why I bought this one, the lack of a viewfinder is very challenging for this old school shooter. The images produced are fine, even if I am not really sure what I am shooting at exactly.
This one was purchased in March 2013 with 3,018 actuations due to the many beautiful posts of what the camera can produce. It does not disappoint.
I purchased this one in November 2013 nearly new from a fellow dpreview member. The camera came with 427 shutter releases and is in pristine condition.
Olympus E-420
Olympus E-5
Olympus E-620
Walmart had the kit set of this and the ZD 14-42 lens for $110 new in November 2012. I do not use it much, and should use it more than I do.
This one was bought new in box in September 2012 and is quite the fine camera. My GAS period was well underway with this camera and lasted another six months.
I bought this one in September 2010 in Prague, Czech Republic after my E-500 was stolen in that country. It was my only camera until September 2012. It has produced many fine images.

Okay, an eighteenth lens. The price was right to purchase this new in December 2013 to try out a micro four thirds lens. I am amazed at how small these lenses are.
This one was purchased to provide that extra reach in some of my landscape and wildlife photography. I have been pleased enough with the performance and images produced thus far.

Olympus Zuiko Digital 17.5-45mm 1:3.5-5.6
Olympus Zuiko Digital 25mm 1:2.8 Pancake
This one was purchased new in October 2012. This lens is a beautiful wide angle lens, nary a problem on any of my camera bodies, limited in what it can produce only by me.
I picked this one up used for $65 in 2012 at a local Starbucks. That was my first visit to a Starbucks, and since then I have been to one other once, to buy the ZD 150 lens. Do not frequent Starbucks during GAS periods.
This was also a new in box purchase in November 2012 for $250, another of those full MSRP purchases. I do not make use of the lens, but should.

A very beautiful lens purchased refurbished from Olympus America in December 2012. If you have this one and the ZD 35-100, you are well set for beautiful images.

Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 150mm 1:2.0
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 18-180mm 1:3.5-6.3
This one came with the E-420 back in November 2012.
This one too was a Starbucks purchase back in 2012. I find this lens to be vexing given my skill set. There are more than ample images on this forum and elsewhere to show what the Little Tuna can do.
A new in box purchase in June 2012. This lens delivers well, and I find good use on close ups especially.

Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50-200mm 1:2.8-3.5 SWD
I purchased this one used from a gentleman via ebay. The lens is beautiful in design and performance, absolutely a shinning example of a well crafted lens. I will be most pleased when my skill sets can make the most use of this piece of optics.
This one came with the E-500 back in July 2006 as part of the two lens kit set.
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50mm 1:2.0 Macro
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 70-300mm 1:4.0-5.6
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm 1:4.0
This one was bought new in box in December 2011 from one of the big boys in New York City. A fine lens, one I do not use often enough.
I Acquired this one in October 2012 new in box for a very good price of $1,208. For the world of wide angle shots, this one is not to be beat.
