Olympus E-P1 and the Evening Light

I recently purchased a brand new Olympus E-P1 (the original Olympus digital PEN) camera from Best Buy.  I've been pining for a small, fun camera with great image quality, and I finally have one.  I have quite a bit of cash invested into my Canon system, so I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a secondary camera.  When the Best Buy outlet offered brand new in the box E-P1's bodies for $139.99 I finally took the plunge.

The quirks of the E-P1 do not bother me.  I'm using a 40-year-old Pentax Asahi Takumar lens, so the camera's well-known autofocus issues don't bother me.  The LCD screen is better than adversited.  And more than anything, this camera is just fun to take pictures with.  I look at it and I hear it screaming "pick me up- me me up now!"
