    hi I have a epl1 had it a few years from new with a couple of lenses not picked the camera up for about 2 years and was wondering what would be a decent upgrade to the camera body ? Lost my way in which pen models are in the range I wouldn't like to spend a fortune maybe a older body but better than the epl1

    Well honestly just about anything is going to be an upgrade!

    Can you give a few more details about budget and what you want in a camera? Do you want a viewfinder? Smallest size? Just need a little more to go on.

    Thanks for the reply I find the epl1 a bit slow not to bothered about size wanted to spend no more than £400 I will have second hand

    £400 could get you a brand new e-m10 mark II. That's a fantastic current model camera. You could get the previous version for almost half that.

    If you wanted a top end camera from 2 years ago, the EP5 is quite affordable used, as is the Panasonic GX7.

    E-PL1 is a very early micro 43rds camera (I still shoot with 3 of them). Pretty much anything these days would be a good step up. Get the newest you can afford. If you want a viewfinder, I'd recommend the latest E-M10 or E-M5.

    Thanks for the replies will look into the cameras in the mean time has anyone got any settings for the epl1 that are essential to turn on/off

    Thanks for the suggestions I have been offered a used epl5 for my epl1 and £50 would people say this is a good price/ upgrade from the epl1 ?

    That is a very good upgrade. The E-pl5 has image quality rivaling the latest models and the performance and AF speed is very good.
