Seriously, the E-PL1 is also a great camera with great output. Unless the form factor of the E-PL1 is really bugging you, I would get some good glass to go with it and buy the 20mm.
Thou tauntest me, good sir. I keep thinking I could spend about $300 for a new Panny 20mm f1.7 instead of getting another camera body. Today, amazon has the E-P2 with the 28mm lens for 5 and a quarter.
BTW, amazing shot. The clouds and sky sing out.
What lens are you talking about ......me thinks me is interested.....
Man oh man, I'm looking at the thread on images from the 20mm Panny and you are right. That lens will also make the overall camera much smaller. I love putting my Contax G lenses on the E-PL1; best lenses I've ever owned on a film camera and now on a digital one as well. But I could get huge aperture plus autofocus and IBIS with the Panny f1.7.
Say, how would you set an EP camera with a dedicated micro 4/3 lens that doesn't have built-in IS? In the case of the Panny 20mm, do you set the EP for 20 or 40 mm? Or does the Panny lens transmit enough info to the EP body for it to set the focal length automatically?
