    Which is where I got mine. :) I got an even better deal because of my contacts there, but that's another story... lol.

    You can't beat this deal! The E-PL1 was a steal for how little they charge (it had gone down to as low as $349 that I've seen, and is now back to $399), but it was compromised in a lot of ways. Not for somebody looking for the height of quality in a Compact System Camera. The E-PL2 on the other hand, is a totally uncompromising camera. Functionally it's every bit as good as the E-P2, in some ways even better, and it also retains a solid build and construction like the E-P1 and E-P2. But at that price, the only thing cheaper is the E-PL1! The cheapest Sony NEX is still $100 more, and they want $1000 just to upgrade the lens, lol.

    I think Olympus is putting out some really good offerings to make unique, high quality cameras affordable to the general public.
