    I'm wondering how the E-PL2 would perform in a specific situation.. could someone do a quick test using pop up flash:

    Aperture priority, ISO Auto, Flash off
    - take a picture of a low light situation.. I'd expect the camera would try to keep the shutter speed hand holdable, while increasing iso as necessary.. example of realistic settings: f2.8 1/30 iso1600

    Aperture priority, ISO Auto, Flash slow synchro TTL
    - take picture in the same situation... I'd expect the camera would continue to keep the shutter speed hand holdable while possibly dropping iso... expected settings: f2.8 1/30 iso800 (or 1/60 iso1600)

    For those who are interested on how the GF2 performs on the above test:

    It drops iso from 1600 to 100, takes shutter to a non-hand-holdable 1/2 and fires the flash... at this point, switching from iso auto to manual 1600 causes TTL flash to not lower power at all and accordingly blow out all highlights

    Of course we use it, mainly to control the wireless Oly flashes.
