Skipper494: Why do we have to click three times to get to this stupid review? A 150mm equivalent is NOT a portrait lens anyway, 85 is quite enough, any more and you're stopping down too far to get depth of focus, into the diffraction range.

The links have become confusing as hell, agreed.

Francis Sawyer: "most compact-camera-user orientated, Micro Four Thirds model yet released"

ORIENTATED? Come on, guys. That's pathetic.

Wait, there's more:

"Olympus has opted for a beginner-orientated design"


What is this, a spelling bee, a study in nomenclature, semantics? Perhaps grammar 101 will be next. This nonsense is not what anyone is looking for in a review, or even in an opinion of a damn camera.

You have to admit the continuing implementation of these incredible technological upgrades are great, but even greater if only the marketing bafoons wuld quit muffng around the design and engineering dept's over needless worry of cannibalizing dlsr sales. It ain't a dslr, it's a compact, and we want a Cadillac, or Mercedes if you're across the pond. We want it all we can hide in a pocket. Simple terms.

National Geographic, Sports Illustrated nor Playboy photographers are going to feel threatened if you give us the whammyfest in a compact. No worries. lol

I mentioned [here] about needing a 42.5 or 45mm fast prime lens as far back as 2004 for 4/3. What a sweet set up that would have been in 4/3 with a 12mp E2 (even the E1). I suppose it's cool it's finally here, but frankly 4/3 is gone as far as any professional (or even semi-por) mind goes, so in 2011 I no longer care about it for MFT. It's got to be a cool propostion though for the budding MFT fold, although I'm not sure exactly why.

What, you gonna photograph Brittany Spears with a EPL ?

Because men like suggestive, and this is definitely suggestive of something more. 3rd place was the best "sexy" or otherwise photo imo, but see above.
