For the longest time, I have wanted to buy the PEN-F and match it with the 17mm f/1.8 but they both have serious flaws. A classic looking camera is so nice but with a FAS it looks stupid. Together with such outdated performance, you are better off buying an old film camera as you will get even more ooh and aahs, if decent performance is not important.

Seems like going from Pen-F to old film camera is a bit extreme. Pen-F still offers plenty good IQ and SAF works just fine. CAF is pretty unusable, but that also applies to most Panasonic bodies that's not G9 or GH5.

If you primarily shoot stationary scenes (landscapes/citiscapes), Pen-F works just fine.

CAF works reliably on my Pen F. When I buy the Pen F 2, maybe I will understand what you lot find lacking in the mark 1.
