    Hi,

    Bought my EPL1 a couple of months ago... and now we have the EPL2. Some of the variations seem quite epl1 compatible by a firmware upgrade. Does anybody have any news on such an upgrade coming anytime soon?

    I'm pretty sure they could possibly include dramatic tone, enhanced filter options, and greater range of AE bracket options through software, but that would defeat the purpose for having the PL2.

    On the other hand, for all I know the hardware may not support some of those features we may think are all software. Numerous sources of information have indicated that the E-PL1 can never support a wired shutter due to hardware that was not designed to allow that. (wired remote release is the feature I most envy on the PL2)
