    I love my wife's GF2, but always drool over the Oly colors. Any Oly bodies have the ability to tilt the built in flash like the GF2 does?
    Tired of borrowing her camera! :redface:

    i do not have the gf2 but if you mean the built-in flash can be tilted to point at the ceiling,
    then e-pl2 can do that but not the e-p3.

    The E-PL1 and E-PL2 both have a nearly identical flash as the GF-1 and GF-2 (except the Olympus one acts as a Remote Flash Commander).

    Actually, Panny stole the bounce idea from Oly.

    The GF1 has the extra linkage so it won't point up.

    Why on earth did Oly and Panny remove the functionality? Is there a technical reason behind it?
