    Just wondering why the grid display on E-pl2 is not that of "rules of third" but very close to it?

    I think the Rule of Thirds is a simplification of the Golden Ratio (or Golden Mean) 1:1.618. The grid on the EPL-2 looks quite close to this ratio.

    I actually prefer to Oly grid to a thirds grid. I'm not that interested in the camera assisting me in composition. I like the grid because it's a good reference for keeping lines straight in the frame.
