After having owned an EP2 for 4 or 5 days, I have to say that the feel of the camera is the most pleasing aspect. Using manual mode is more fiddly than I am used to, however, I'm also finding that IAuto is pretty damn good, so the need for M mode might not arise so much. First impressions are that the EP2 was a wise investment. I think my Canon 30D, and the multitude of accessories that go with it is close to retirement. Whether or not the EP2 will outperform my Canon G9 and G 10 remains to be seen. However initial reactions are that the EP2 is a bit special.
