Congrats on a great find! A quickcheck on the bay shows that a PEN E-PL1 can be had for around $100. It has a swivel screen but is only 12 MP, i.e. quite old tech. You can move up from there, for $150 you should find something you like.

I have a Samsung NX100 that goes with me just about everywhere. With the folding 20-50mm kit lens it is small enough to fit into a corner of a laptop bag or even a coat pocket. It mostly stays in the car, though. The best camera is the one you have with you and a small mirrorless is way better than any phone

As long as you can avoid the dreaded LBA thing, an extra camera is good to have. With the two lenses you already have, you should be OK. As for me, it is getting harder by the day to resist the 50-200mm Samsung lens. It has OIS!

I have looked at that one. Tempting, but it is bigger than the 20-50mm I already have and OIS is not so important to have in a kit zoom lens. Besides, I would rather blow the money on invest in Pentax glass.

Greetings,

Are you sure about the PEN E-PL1 having a swivel screen? I have mine in front of me and do not see anything other than the rear screen and it is not a swivel screen.

Thanks
Tony
