Re: E-PL1 Questions from a Nikon DSLR user


Please read my comments above, after the changes I suggested you will improve the speed. The image quality is surely equal and at times better than LX3(I have use E-PL1 for a few days only) however there are a few "irritants" which you should be well aware before buying this camera.

1. It is noisier than LX3, the noise comes from the motor when focus and shooting.
2. the barrel of the lens " rattles" slightly.

3. Focusing the cameras needs to get use to, if you do it "incorrectly" you can get blur images. There is a method to get it right and get consistently good images, I learnt it from this forum. By reducing the focus box you improve way you focus and hence the speed of the camera.

hope the above helps. I am happy with my purchase you can also change the lens to use "Old or Legacy" to take sharp images.
