This seems worse than configuring a new Laptop sometimes. I want a dual-use Digital camera. My wife wants a really nice Digital to replace a P&S that she never liked. She'll use my Leica Mini P&S film camera before the Kodak Easy-something. Has to be compact, has to have a built in flash, has to be easy to use and give good images. Has to have a reliable battery. That puts me in the Olympus line-up as far as I can tell. And for me- use old manual focus lenses, meaning an Electronic Viewfinder. Questions: 1) Can the EP1 be used with an electronic viewfinder? I know it needs an add-on flash. 2) Any word on the E-PL1 being offered with the 17mm lens over the Zoom? 3) Any real disadvantage of the E-PL1 over the E-P2? I figure the Electronic Viewfinder is going to push the price up. But- back to that built-in flash. They spoil you.
