From the beginning of my experiment with Micro Four Thirds, I've been a Panny guy and happy with my GF1 and G2 (still not completely satisfied with my G3, but that's another story). But I've noticed here and elsewhere that while Panny users may be satisfied, Oly people are downright passionate. There must be something special that I'm missing about the PENs, I've thought. It's somewhat analogous to PC vs. Mac feelings, I'm thinking. So....I took advantage of an opportunity to acquire a refurb E-PL2 with 14-42 II kit kens to become my business travel, JPEG and art filter camera. Many reviews tout the E-PL2 as the pick of the litter, so I figured it would be a good choice to make the comparison without mortgaging the farm...:smile: It was delivered this afternoon and I've had little time to play. Had to look up how to close the lens and the menus are very different. It's a little larger and heavier than I expected, but it feels really good and solid in my hands. And the options are numerous and fascinating! So....I'm looking forward to putting it through its paces and seeing if I can develop that Oly passion!
