Great little camera

Bought this camera secondhand about 3 months ago as a second body to my EPL-1, and haven't stopped being amazed by its capabilities. I had read the various reviews, and was prepared to 'put up with' the lack of buttons & control buttons as it was intended as a second body, but on using this camera, I quite quickly found out that it's all in there ! I have used Olympus E series SLRs for a few years now, and still have a pair of E600s, so I used the Super Control Panel to change any settings. The lack of a dial for MSAP was not a drawback either, as a press of the menu button gives access to all the necessary controls.The lack of a delete button is not a problem, as a press of the OK button when in the play mode gives access to the delete function. Overall, I am delighted with the picture quality and control over photographic adjustments. The lack of a finger grip has been addressed by a 3rd party stick on grip. A great little camera.
