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.

Congratulations on your E-P2, Drunkeld :) I'm pretty sure you'll really enjoy using it just like everyone else (myself included) in this community.

I've been doing a lot of iAuto shooting myself as well, and it does take out the stress of having to think of the settings before shooting.

Is the photo taken in Singapore, btw?

If your E-P2 doesn't out perform your G9 and G10 then there is a real problem.

Don't forget there are modes other than either iAuto or M. If you want more control than iAuto allows but don't want to fiddle with the camera on each shot, A (aperture priority) is a really useful mode. You decide on the aperture and it will adjust the shutter speed and ISO (if the ISO is set to auto) for you. Or S if you want to set the shutter speed and let it pick the aperture. You may know this, but thought I'd mention if it was new to you.

Quality and sensor size

I did some research on the sensor size of cameras. A number that provides easy comparison between models is the length of the diagonal.

Four Thirds: 21.6mm
G9 or G10: 9.5mm

These numbers are why I moved from my G10 to an E-P2.

Best wishes, ....... Lash LaRue.
