I don't need no stinkin' OM-1 ;-)
17

But I did just purchase an absolutely pristine E-M1 III for what I think is a great price on eBay. I bought it from a guy who bought it in 2021 (~6500 shutter count) and was selling it because he recently purchased two OM-1s. So yeehaw for all the folks who DOneed an OM-1, 'cause it's created a great trickle down benefit.

Seriously, I've been wanting to try an Oly MFT body for a long time, so I'm happy to have finally jumped in. It is rather svelte compared to my G9, particularly in the grip. The ergonomics seem fine to me so far (except for the on/off switch on the wrong side!), EVF is good, and I like that the joystick moves diagonally and so quickly.

Now I need to buckle down and spend some time figuring out how to set it up. I'm interested to see how much trouble my old brain has with the notorious Oly menus.
