Hello all! My name is Dave - this is my first post ever on a photo forum. I have used p&s cameras forever and I think its time I stepped it up a little bit. I became interested in the m4/3rds camera when researching dslrs - what attracted me was the photo quality built into the size of a mirrorless camera. It is extremely appealing! So, right now, I am hunting for the right camera. For a while, I had forgotten about the m4/3rds format and was just looking at mirror-equipped dslrs. However, this camera will be, under some circumstances, used for work where I will be staffing events and working with people, so the portability is crucial. For years now we've struggled with getting great photos and great photos play a big role in what I will be doing (non profit work). For a while, I was looking at the Pentax K-x, which I still think is a fabulous camera, but I'm really loving what I'm hearing about the E-PL1! I like that it has the pop-up flash and a few other neat implementations. I do have a few questions for those who have experience using this camera - For work I will be mostly photographing people, probably 2/3 portrait shots (1/2 of which are candid), and 1/3 moving shots. Some shortcomings I've heard about with the E-PL1 are action shots (AF lag?), and some night shots. Because some of the events I would be shooting would be indoors in probably not the best light, this is something I'm trying to get more info about. I've lost too many shots to count because the small p&s's that we've had take a long time to focus (some as much as 5sec!) and most shots in low light situations are completely unusable. I've never had a dslr to compare to so I'd imagine anything is better than what we're using right now. Does anyone have any feedback on how this camera responds in low-light situations or can you describe the autofocus and your experience with it? Can it be improved with a certain lens? Is the whole issue overblown? Does the latest firmware do a lot to improve the shortcomings? I've read up a little on the GF1 as well and hear its AF may be quicker, but I've also heard that with the right lens, AF between the two is nearly identical. Also, since I don't know much about this stuff, when referring to AF speed, are we talking about .08s? .5s? What is an average dslr AF speed? You won't have to do much convincing for me to get the E-PL1 as I really like what I'm seeing (especially the photo thread!) but I thought it might be wise to ask users of the camera what they thought about low-light and AF since for the work I'll be doing with it, those two features will come in to play. Thank you so much for any/all feedback. Really excited to be jumping on the 4/3rds wagon!
