Anyway, the PL3 was bought with only 1 little scratch on the LCD, and for quite a silly price. The 14-45 will hopefully arrive on tuesday/wednesday, which gives me half a week to play around with it before handing it over. Not too sure if I'll ever get it back tough.

So this used EPL3 was being sold body only with no lens?

Bear in mind that the Panny 14-45, like nearly all the Panny zooms, has Optical IS, and there is a switch on the barrel for it. The EPL3 IBIS has to be off if you want to use the OIS, otherwise you get a double compensation that makes the images even more blurred.

Thanks for the reminder, but i was aware of this.

Basically it was my desicion to get a used Oly body (lying beside me) and find the better kit-lens (Pana 14-15 according to this forum) for all the full-auto outings.

When she's in 'learning-mode' we'll slap on the adapter and Canon FD-stuff

The E-PL3 and the Pany 14-45 are a very formidable combo! You can do a LOT with them and the 14-45 is very very sharp. I have the E-PM1 and 14-45 and it still holds up very well against my E-M5 and 12-50! My wife now uses the E-PM1!
