I have two FT bodies and an FV, all three with silver finish. I don't find any pictures of them, though...

I have a silver F and a black FT with chrome knobs and levers. They both look very nice, but I also have no photos of them. And which one should I vote for?.... Hmmmm.....

I voted black but can't show it because I'm still looking for one that isn't being sold by an optimist.

Not a sticker - it's laser engraved.

I voted for silver, then read down. I sure wish Olympus had not called their new digital camera a "Pen F". I'm a user of the original Pen F and now searches mostly show just digital stuff unless you specify "film" and even then there are a lot of digital bodies and lenses that show up.

Among the half frame Pen SLR series I prefer the original F because of the plain matte screen without the micro prism center. All my OM bodies use the 1-10 grid matte screen. I also have to say that the F body looks cleaner because it does not have that self timer lever. The gothic 'F' on the front is a nice touch too. Got to get some gold colored paint and fill mine back in.

A little disappointed there aren't more photos on here...so here's a pic of my F. I also wish they'd given it a different name, maybe Pen FD? But whatever. The F is my only digital camera now, and I think it's great, especially now that I appreciate the increased depth of field of m4/3 more than I once did. I mostly shoot jpegs, honestly, and though I was skeptical at first as I suspect most of you were, I use the front-mounted art filter control constantly. It's usually set to mono, and I have a bit of grain dialed in. Being able to close the screen is fantastic—it reminds me of the R-D1.

That's a lovely rig!

I didn't know there was a hood for the 17/1.8; where did you get yours?

It's just a generic eBay hood! It came with a lens cap, too, marked CONTAX. I don't need a hood, really, but I absolutely despise Olympus's lens caps and wanted a push-on one.

Beautiful little camera. If I was in the market for a compact digital it would be hard to go past something like the Pen F even though I really never embraced micro four thirds with the OMD I had for while. Just the form of this little gem would suck me in!

The camera is beautiful and for what I have seen can produce excellent images. I carefully evaluating it. Maybe too many functions for a simple photographer like myself!
Waiting for the new Olympus 25/1,2 which should be announced at the next Photokina, than I'll decide about...

I'm surprised there hasn't been more Pen digital shots here. I came within a whiskers of getting when it launched. In the end I sold my Oly gear and went back to Fuji Xpro. The Pen doesn't load though it's dropped much in price. I'll be keen to see how the next version is, whenever that may be.

Oly priced themselves out of the market with this one.

Very cool... the film ones have always been cool, but I think Olympus has done a great job with this camera.

Yeah R-D1 also had the buttons disappear along with the screen

Pen-F looks really good from the front though. I was not very happy with the art switch but now I have come to terms with it and when the price gets at some reasonable level I might even use it as much as you.
