I bought the EPL1 with the Kit and the 40-150 (cameta refurbished) as a PS replacement. I also got an adapter for my Nikkon stuff (so far have used my Tamron 90, my 80-200 f2.8, 24-85 D, and 300 AFS with TC1.4/1.7) with amazing results, especially shooting video from a tripod.

I still see great benefits to DSLR for wildlife and large landscapes, but for the price of the EPL1 now and how good the images from it are, its a fantastic purchase. I was lucky and found a VF2 on CL for $125 and it really makes the EPL1 into a front line camera IMHO.

BTW if you are into video make sure any legecy lens has smooth aperature movement as you'll want to control lighting with aperature when you are actually imaging and the only way to do that is in manual and using the aperature ring to control the F stop.
