I ended up picking up an(other) E-P1 (it was originally intended for a friend but they backed out due to finances). The desire to help SRHEdD get his OMD and the narcotic effect of a positive PayPal balance has on ones decision making ...you get the idea. As it turns out my son is using my GF2 so he's using that when we practice photography. I originally had him using an old Panasonic ZS3 I have but he wanted a "real camera" like mine so I gave him my GF2 to use (red is his favorite color so it was an instant hit). FWIW it really is better having him on the GF2 and me on the GH2 as the controls are so similar making it easier to explain stuff instead of translating everything to point and shoot. So there was an opening for a second body at my house anyway. In any case, my only real beef with the E-P1 is the "oh so easily turned" lower rear dial. Is there anyway to lock that like you can in the E-P3 or E-PL2? I'd love to have it set up so that the upper dial is aperture (no problem) and the lower dial is locked until I hit the exposure compensation button. As I recall I could never get it to do that but I thought I'd ask some of the E-P1 power users here if they new any way to accomplish that.
