    After playing around with the E-PL3, I have to think this guy is going to feel tiny. I am very curious to see what they have done with the interface to make it work with the single control wheel and whether they will have novice and advanced user options.

    I guess my thread (e-pm1-listed-uniquephoto-499-kit-lens) wasn't official enough! haha, kidding.

    I would have debated between the pm1 and pl3 forever if the pm1 were listed at $599/kit, but at $499 there is no debate. I want the smallest possible, and won't worry myself with control on this body; it is a perfect pair with the g3, and the 14mm will fit on there just right!

    e-pm1 is asking to put Panny 14mm on it. Black or silver?

    Purple? It would be a tiny, powerful package with the 14mm.

    Paul, yeah you definitely had early find with the Unique Photo product listing. :biggrin: This was just the first time I had seen it coming from Olympus.

    At the msrp even, if you're not interested in the kit lens that makes it about a $350 proposition (which will likely be my stance, I'll have to debate which kit lens to keep, it or the panny 14-42, but in reality I'll probably never use either).
