Jody- How can you be sure "that will be the end"? I was given an Olympus PenEE, a few years ago. I had the same thoughts as you, but decided to give it a whirl. I hadn't shot 35mm in 20 years, let alone half frame. I had a blast with it, and it led me to revisit my 35mm camera. From that, I was led in other directions, but directions I would not have traveled if I hadn't tried the camera.
