Anyone still using the original em5?

Hi all,

I started photography about 10 years ago. Ended up with an original em5 and kit lens and it was a match made in heaven.  That camera ended up dying and I replaced it with the em5 mark 2 with 12-40 lens.

I didn't like the newer camera much. It had slightly better IQ with the pro lens but it was clunky and twice the weight.

Anyway that cameras now gone and I'm wondering where to go from here. I mainly just do landscapes and sunrises.

I have use of a Nikon z and while it's good for certain things like sports, it just doesn't have the same charm , feeling in hands or lovely jpeg saturation as the original Olympus did.

So I'm considering either going for an em10iii or similar, or possibly just getting a second hand em5 again.

Is anyone who can afford better cameras still using the original em5?
