Olympus PEN E-1 with Zuiko 40 - 150mm

I've had an Olympus PEN E-1 since it came out. I quite liked the idea of a compact mirrorless camera with a large(ish) sensor, and I already had an Olympus E330 so could use the glass with a MFT adapter. Even though I eventually went to Full-Frame 35mm with a Canon 5D2 I kept the PEN and the 14 - 42mm and 40 - 150mm lenses. 
It went with my daughter to uni, then to the U.S. and eventually made its way home via a 10 month stay in China.

Since then is done a bit of Ebay photography duty but pretty much stayed in its camera bag. Until recently when I was sorting through stuff and came upon it, I started playing with it and remembered all the things I had liked about it.
OK, so things get a bit noisy above 400 ISO but I really liked the Art mode preset Grainy Film so it didn't really matter. I've been using it for portraits.
