Gavin, you'll get more responses in the M4/3 forum, which is one click under the Olympus SLR forum.

Thanks for the steering your friend toward the O-MD camera. If money or size/weight are a concern, I can certainly recommend the E-PL5, which is smaller and lighter than the O-MD but not as robust (and not weather-proofed.) The 14-42 kit lens is okay... but I sure hope Oly comes out with a better general-purpose lens, such as the wonderful 14-54 on the regular 4/3 mount.
