A solid, versatile, reliable camera
5

It's hardly state-of-the-art in terms of its sensor or autofoocus, but it is a very tough, weatherproof and capable camera.  While it uses essentially the same body and mostly the same innards as the E-3, many small but significant improvements and tweaks are the reason that the E-5 has held its value so well.

Photography is a small voice, at best, but sometimes one photograph, or a group of them, can lure our sense of awareness.
