Re: E-PL1 as walkaround

I agree with the other posters who say that the E-PL1 is a good walkaround camera. It's not a DSLR as others have pointed out, but it's fast enough for most street applications and the IQ is really, really good, especially if you put the Panasonic 20mm on it. It's also quite fun and easy and not noticeable to most, and not intimidating to those who do notice.

I think you will enjoy it most if you don't think of it as a DSLR. Micro Four-Thirds is kind of a new category of camera, as you will no doubt read elsewhere on this forum. It's hard to pin down but I think it's sort of more useful than a p&s and easier and more likely to be with you than a DSLR.

You bring up a very valid point; a smaller camera will more likely be with me than a DSLR would. It's definitely the main reason for me wanting to get an E-PL1 (or similar).
