It is pretty slow with the kit lens but most point and shoot cameras are slow too so you might not notice that it is all that slow. Focusing in low light is a definite issue though. Sometimes it just can't handle low light situations.

It also focuses quicker when you use one of the Panasonic lenses as well. I have the 14-45 on my E-PL1 which makes it acceptable in well lit situations but I have seen how quick the E-P3 is with the touch screen focusing and shooting...not that I would use that much... but it is blazingly fast!

The E-PL1 is definitely one amazing deal now though. I have seen them going for less than $250 new from some retailers.
