User news?

Nothing seems to happen much in this section. Is it because everyone is very satisfied with their Pen F so no need to moan about it, everyone out using it or has everyone sold theirs?

I have noticed a lot for sale on the internet sites which is unusual in just about a year since it's release.

Re: User news?

I think it's fair to say it fits in a bit of a niche market and is somewhat overshadowed by the latest O-MD models, but if I was in a position to upgrade my E-M5 I'd be taking a serious look at it. I know Paul Kaye is getting great results from his,, but then he would with any camera!

Re: User news?

I'm very happy with mine. It's let me do some street photography and with the 17mm lens you can just stick it in a (reasonably capacious) pocket.

Re: User news?

Thanks everyone for your positive comments. I may just have to sell one of my EM-1 bodies to make room for the Pen-F and give it a try. My health problems may lead me back to street photography away from natural history, which is my first passion, thus my interest!
