Okay, so I thought touch screen was gimmicky but there are times when it is downright useful.

And the SCP, that took me a while to figure out but it IS working. Funny that it just came up automatically on my E330 and E30 but I have to work at the menu to have it on the EPL-5. It should be there by default. I think many EPL-5 users are those like me who understand what the sensor and the very quick AF can do and opted for the EPL-5 rather than the admittedly more featured OMD; the more advanced user and not necessarily the P&S crowd. In that respect Olympus should have thought of features like the SCP as a default configuration rather than causing folks to spend all that foolish time activating the wrenches and getting the SCP configured to work. Just my 2 cents.
