i'm currently shooting a panasonic G3 with a canon sx230 digicam as a carryaround. well, today i went out shooting with the canon, and found that even though i love the long zoom, it has too many stumbling blocks to my taking the photos i want to get. the last straw - it could not focus on a bug that i could have gotten in seconds with a micro 4/3 camera with manual focus easily. and the pics aren't great in less than optimal light - which i expected, but still find disappointing. since i have a collection of m4/3 and adapted lenses, and considering the very low price of the e-pl1, i thought it might be a good carryaround. then i noticed that the e-p2 is also available at a pretty loveable price, just $70 more, so i started checking out the differences. e-p2 has both a dedicated ISO button and an exposure compensation button, and these are things i use enough that in the past i've passed on buying cameras that didn't have them. on the other hand, the sample pics on dpreview show better detail for epl1 pics compared to ep2 pics in both raw and jpg. also the epl1 back a couple years was the low light camera, and i shoot in low and challenging lighting. i searcged for comparisons between the two cameras, and found this thread here Mirrorless Camera ISO Signal/Noise Shootout: NEX5, NX10, E-P2, E-PL1, GF1, G2, GH1 and seems to me that the epl1 shows more detail at lower ISO's than the ep2, and that the gf1 actually has lower noise at ISO 1600 than either olympus. but it's not a thread about features, grip, etc. so i'm hoping people who have used either camera - or both - can give me the real world pros and cons of each. that would be very helpful. thanks!
