I like the EP2, but I don't want to spend too much money at this time. The review of the E-PL1 here indicates that DSLR users will not be too thrilled with it, but I'm wondering if there are any DSLR users here who have been using an E-PL1 frequently?

I have both the E-620 and the E-PL1 and use both for different purposes. The PL1 I find amazing for street shooting, which requires some quick reflexes. But I have configured for it, with pre-focussing and no image review.

AF speed very much depends on the latest firmware upgrade and the newest lenses.

With my 17mm it is fast, but about half as fast as with the 620. Choosing the smallest frame for CDAF helps in dim light, but is no different from the 620.

Time to process the image is the limit with all LiveView cameras. With the PL1 it is noticeable especially in RAW, so I wouldn't use it for sequential shooting.
