Re: E-PL1 Questions from a Nikon DSLR user

I don't think you would be disappointed with the speed of an E-PL1, because you don't buy it to be a DSLR. Having said that, I use an E-3 with heavy SHG lenses, and while the E-3 is not lightning fast, it is pretty good. But I have found the E-PL1 faster than I thought and perfectly acceptable, and image quality is excellent, better than the E-3 in fact. For single shot action it is no problem though not good for continuous shooting.

The shot here was an unplanned reflex action in hugely contrasting light (facing into a harsh dawn sun), using the 14-42 kit lens. My E-3 would have done no better using an expensive lens. In fact the E-3 would not have got the shot because I would not have had it in my hand at the time, which I think is the real point.

Cheers,
Don
