Vincent LL: Bought this camera and am enjoying it with the 40mm pancake. I've been an early adopter of micro 4/3 and love my OM-D with all the nice prime lenses, but honestly what comes out of my SL1 with the 40mm pancake can rival my OM-D with the 17mm (or the 12mm for that matter). I'm no fan of the jack-of-all-trades camera or lens, but this SL1 I can see using as my main camera with a 24mm and the 40mm for most of my everyday photography. If a need a longer lens, I'll get my other Canon cameras because the SL1 is too small and light for a big zoom. Birding with an SL1 is not an option (viewfinder too small, camera too small), and sports with the SL1 is not an option either (grip is too small, can not move+zoom fast and confidently enough). Great walkaround camera, and will give a run for its money to my OM-D; probably I'll use the SL1 for lower light conditions and my OM-D when lighting is good. Very happy to have this camera; another tool in my camera bag!

Thanks White Shadow. I'll look into the Zeiss lens; will need to test before purchasing though!

Thanks White Shadow. I'll look into it, but with such a small viewfinder I can't see myself having fun with manual focusing lenses. For the 24mm F1.4, I find it a bit large and heavy for this small camera. I'll try and snag the older version of the Canon 24mm, which is lighter (and obviously less performant).

Bluevellet, simply talking about experience and not specs here. The OM-D is awesome for good lighting conditions and with the 12mm and 17mm it is now good inside (EP-2 and EP-3 were awful). However, I find that my low light photos are better with the new SL1 than with my OM-D. I don't use any in-camera noise correction; I prefer software noise correction. Love both systems, just trying to use the right camera for the right situation.
