I think this foster child may have found a permanent home. I really
like this little camera.

Just right look and feel. I liked holding it. OTOH, it's a DSLR, with tiny LCD 
and no live view, so never serious for me.

I just haven't shot with it because I don't
have a battery charger yet (or spare battery),

Mea Culpa, Dood! I just didn't remember the different battery thing.

Thought you said you had them already coming. Charger, cord and spare battery 
off by Priority Mail tomorrow.

so it's been used only
around home. The 14-42 lens feels just right on this camera. Maybe I
can score an old E-Pen for the battery and charger. I've always wanted
to take one of those, scavenge everything out and graft it into this
in-op OM-1 that I have here in my junk box.

All but one of the seven I've had over the years are gone, all but the E-PL7, the last "real" one. I really hated to see the E-PM2 go, but it had tech-aged out. Two axis IBIS wasn't that great. Once the GM5 with built-in EVF and Panny OIS lenses came on the scene, the love affair cooled.

What if the Hokey Pokey *IS* what it's all about?
