In praise of the E-P5

I realize many Mu-4/3 photographers have been recently singing the praises of the newest camera to bear the Olympus name, the OM-1 -- but for some of us, some older Olympus cameras still rock. High on my personal list is my favorite digital Pen model, the E-P5. Quite a few EP5 users have already commented in thoughtful detail about its many virtues and capabilities, but one of the things that has always truly drawn me to the E-P5 is: it looks good.

Also, when paired with a tiny lens - like the 9mm Olympus BCL fisheye - it rivals the looks of the favorite camera of many aspiring street photographers, the Ricoh GRIIIx.

A modern evolution which would bring a smile to the face of Yoshihisa Maitani, designer of the original analog Olympus Pen, who once famously said, “the object of photography is to express what is in your heart and mind.”

Please feel free to contribute to this thread with other E-P5 tidbits.
