I just bought an E-P1, in part because I wanted to own what will arguably be a classic camera, in part because the price was too good to pass up. I figured it would be a nice second camera with my E-Pl1. I expected the E-Pl1 would remain my primary camera and the E-P1 would be something to experiment/play with. Then I started using the E-P1. I am completely amazed at the difference the control wheels make as well as the additional capabilities and options. I rarely used the flash on the E-Pl1 - I bought it because I got a good price on a refurbished camera and kit lens. It is quickly becoming obvious that the E-Pl1 will be the back-up camera. I love it, but the E-P1 is simply better in so many ways (for me, at least). I am extremely grateful that I decided to buy the E-P1, if I hadn't I would have missed out on an incredible camera. Perhaps I appreciate it more having used the E-Pl1 for a while first. I expect to have a lot of fun with both.
