Mine sits in a box, I'm not sure of it's relevance currently. It's untouched because of a Nex5 and an X100, not sure whether to hang onto it as a "relic" or find a new home for it. Unfortunately it's coolness it seems has simply been eclipsed.

"Unfortunately it's coolness it seems has simply been eclipsed."
Coolness is pretty much in the eye of the beholder. As Luckypenguin says, it's a nice little camera - sell it, because some beholders still think it's cool.

There still isn't a "cooler" camera for me. I look at the E-P3, and it appeals to me just like an E-P1 does.

I should rephrase, yes I agree, it's STILL quite cool, I've just got too many different cameras and it's the oldest one that I feel subsequent purchases have bettered technology wise, that's all. Sometimes I just want to clean house and have ONE camera. (right, gonna!) Too many adapters, formats, menus accessories etc. The Fuji stays, the Nex5 takes all my Nikon glass that the E-P1 used to use. I guess three's sort of a crowd right now. I really like the looks of the E-P3 and feel a bit shortchanged as an early adapter with the 1...

Mine´s actually playing second fiddle to my G2, but it is the camera that I always bring along to my (frequent) business trips. Some recent shots taken in between meetings:

Still use mine. Just bought a G1 for the vf. But I just don't find that I work well with it. I don't like the vf at all, and the button arrangement is just not as easy to use, for me any way. The G1 will probably go away, as soon as I can afford to replace it with E-p2 or 3.

Antonio-you are an artist, much like a virtuoso violinist...it's not the instrument but the inherent skill and intuition, Bravo, thanks for the palpable reminders of what the Olympus can do!
I shoot about 50 shots and am lucky if a handful are keepers...and I'm good with that, I try to surprise myself! So I guess It comes down to the camera system that brings me closer to getting what I think I'm capturing.

Great photos, Antonio - exactly what the thread needed :2thumbs:. Nic, I agree with Antonio - you know how to present the E-P1!

I know that the E-P1 tech has been eclipsed, but I am continually drawn to the look and feel of that camera.

I agree. I had an E-P2 for a while, and eventually sold it because I preferred the performance of my GF1. I like my GF1, but the Pen was good to hold and great to look at. It felt like a camera, a real camera.

Is there ANY better looking digital camera than an EP1 with a nice legacy lens -- like an M or CV, or a nice Jupiter as shown. (well, OK -- let's say less than $6,000 digital camera :)
