Re: A couple of surprises

Thank you for your feedback on the EP-1/2.

I definitely understand the value of a more subtle camera and the release of the EP-1 is what first drew my attention to mFT (I hadn't paid much attention to the G1). I think the EP2 with EVF loses much of the "invisible" gap between is and the GH1 with the chunky add-on and the simple difference of holding the camera to your face. Of course, EP2 has the flexibility of going either way.

Last summer I participated in the annual worldwide photo-walk and everyone else in my group had large DSLRs with multiple lenses and large camera bags. I was shooting a Canon P&S digital, FED3 35mm film camera (Russian Leica imitation) and a 120 film pinhole camera. I got some strange looks from the other photographers, but I felt more comfortable walking the neighborhood than I would have with a D3 with 70-200 VR on it.

In the end, it isn't an easy choice because both the GH1 and the EP2 are excellent cameras.
