Olympus PEN E-PL1 review

My wife bought one today, after having done some hands-on tests of it's bigger brothers, the Lumix-look-alike, and a few others.

Impressed, I must say!

About the same capacity as my Pentax K-x, in a smaller package :-)!

Have ordered a Pansasonic 20mm/1.7 and a 50mm/2.0 Macro for it!


I would say that a viewfinder would be an essential assesory!
A thousand pictures later, still no troubles, and better autofocus than my Pentax K-x (which otherwise is fairly comparable, except that the latter has a viewfinder, of course).
