Hi all, I am a long time reader and first time poster. I am considering purchasing another camera and seek the advice of the more experienced amongst you. The 2 cameras I am looking at are the EPM1 and the X10. Different cameras I know, but in a similar price range. I currently own an EP1, 17mm, Oly 45mm, Oly 40 – 150mm and FL36R + multiple batteries and filters. I have used this set up now for about 18 months and IMHO there are 2 deficiencies with the EP1 that limit the functionality; no EVF and poor focusing in low light. I have to admit that with the 45mm attached the pictures are considerably sharper than with the 17mm or the kit zoom. I visited a camera shop recently and played with both the EPM1 and the X10. Most are impressive in their own right and both have advantages over the other. I was concerned that the EPM1 may be rather limited in functionality after using an EP1 for some time, but I have discovered that one can activate the SCP. I predominantly operate in Aperture mode and with the SCP available the EPM1 would be a good choice. On the other hand the X10 is most impressive and I have read many users’ experiences on this site. All are positive and many state that the results are on par with the Oly M43 sensor the majority of the time. I see it has a very small built in flash and this would be lower power than the EPM1 clip on. Currently the EPM1 is bundled with the kit lens and the VF3 and post duty free would cost $530 USD. The X10 would cost $565, so very similar. I am uncertain whether to diverge away from the M43 class for this purchase; the cameras are a similar size and with primes fitted the EPM1 is only marginally larger. The logical side says to maximise the use of the M43 lens etc and purchase the EPM1. The emotional side steers me towards the X10. The build quality of the X10 is wonderful, and only the sensor size is concerning. Then of course there is the Oly dramas are present and whether there will be a future. At times I enjoy the DOF that M43 can generate, but this is not paramount for me in a camera; there are many times when I am stopping down for everything in the frame to be in focus. I am not into printing large posters. I would be very interested to hear the opinions of those who have experienced the X10 and how comparable the results are to the current Oly Pens for OOC JPEGS which is what I use 99% of the time. Thank you in advance for any feedback.
