I also enjoy this combination. My E-PL3 has cracks on the screen but works fine. I have a silver and a black 17 2.8 because, you know, it has to match the body.View attachment 409810
Todays outtake, I like this quite a bit but the technical quality is... under par. I may be somewhat spoilt in regards of malleability of the files, but the combo I am shooting currently is not bringing me much joy and put my PP skills to the test just to end up with at best mediocre output.
Adding the VF-2 at least let me compose decently, so I have taken that out of the fault loop. I think I will go from natural to vivid in the camera setting to see if that may sort something out, according to some reviews, the 17 mm may have low contrast issues among other stuff.
I think I will bring with one of the E-PM-1s with the either the PL15 or the Lumix 20mm tomorrow, shooting the same motifs with that and see how that fares. The sensor in those are the same as in the E-PL3.
I like the size and handling, but am rather unimpressed with the results. Will dig further into the settings and such. As per now, there is something in this combo that's not working for me and it nags me.I also enjoy this combination. My E-PL3 has cracks on the screen but works fine.

I actually like them both (your outtake and your official Day 3 post) quite a lot. I would be hard pressed to say which I preferred... but this is a great 'outtake', Gordon.
Quite contrary, it is much appreciated and helps toward the conclusion that there is something not entirely right with my combo. Based of the basic tests I did yesterday with the OM-1 and the 17mm, I think the lens may be a goner or at best unstable in focusing.
