...I don't have that nostalgia factor with Olympus though. Never touched an Olympus film camera. To me, the OM-Ds are ugly and boxy. The Pens, especially the EP line, I feel differently. I still do not care about its retro styling, it's just a sexy piece of kit in its own right with a nice hefty, metallic feel to it (E-P3/E-P5). ...

It is interesting. I had Olympus OM-1n and OM-2 cameras, but so long ago I barely remember when (likely around 1975). For all the styling stuff to get me to reminisce about the OMs, it doesn't click with me either. I like the E-M1 for what it is, for its grip and ergonomics, and don't really look at it—I look through it.

The Pen E-P5 is very pretty. As is the GX7. My Sony A7 is a weird conglomeration of odd shapes and angles. But again I rarely look at my cameras; I look through them.
