Exposure, framing and colors...

My experience with the E-P1 (and Olympus cameras in general) and exposure is that the camera does a good job, the semi automatic modes works well, and experience have taught me when to compensate. So I don't use the screen for exposure, when in doubt I enable the live histogram and make my decisions there.

Colors are not terribly important, they are done in raw convertion anyway.

And Framing is quite possible, at least on the E-P1 the screen shows contrast well so I can see the lines and elements (if not their color or finer detail) so I can compose images without problems and also follow action and shoot at the right time.

For the most part I don't have to worry about focus when there is bright light, since AF works well there.
