A mixed review of the E-PL2

The E-PL2 is very conveniently sized with the 14-42mm kit lens.  The ability to shoot RAW and adjust the exposure and white balance gives flexibility and creativity.  However, the main drawback is the slow auto-focus and the difficulty with manual focus in low light conditions.  I have recently learned that the camera also suffers from "shutter-shock" with takes the fine details out of images with shutter speeds between about 1/100 to 1/250, which covers a lot of popular shutter speeds for most photographers.
