I carry an OM-D and a Lumix 20mm f1.7 around town in my shoulder bag. Light compact, no muss, no fuss. Great for landscape, portrait, low light, etc. Mobile photography with a big sensor. When I travel I slap on a 14-150mm zoom but keep the 20mm around as well. I actually did a 4 week trip to Northern India and Nepal and I produced as nice and varied pics as my wife and my father did with their Canon mid tier DSLRs and 18-200mm lenses. I owned the EPL1 for a couple years and Canon and Pentax DSLRs before that; the OMD I find has no draw backs. The EPL1's slow focusing has been improved, image quality is on par with DSLR's and the weight lose and compact size make it a much better fit for crowded markets, street scenes, and self propelled back country travel.
