1) E-PL1 w. 4/3 kit zoom 14-42 + Adapter ? 2) E-PL1 highlight clipping ?
Jul 30, 2012

I am going to get myself one of the very affordable E-PL1 bodies plus the Panasonic 1.7/20mm lens plus the VF-2 viewfinder. I expect to use the 14-42 only rarely. Will the autofocus work sufficiently with that combination?

Secondly: I have seen some really bad highlight clipping on E-PL1 pictures taken with zero exposure bias. I usually take JPG pictures with -0.7 EV. Would that help? Is taking RAWs a safe remedy?

Thanks and Regards, Herbert
