Went to Best Buy and got to hold the E-PL1 and the GF2. I was surprised how small they were. They look bigger on the reviews. I have normal sized hands and couldn't believe how tiny they were, especially the GF2. I have to say I liked the ergonomics and the feel of the Olympus better than the Panasonic. I really like the dial on the top and dislike the menu diving, though I could learn to live with it. The touch screen was ok. The LCD itself looked much better on the Olympus. The Panasonic seems more responsive, however. The Olympus seemed to hunt just a litte more. I can't imagine what it would do with a moving subject. The GF2 felt very flimsy to me but I liked how small it was. I would have liked a thumb dial, bigger then the hard to use one on the Panasonic, on the Olympus. I really wanted to like the Olympus performance-wise. It just wasn't there in my in-store testing. It just hunted too much and I am thinking I would miss something with this one. Maybe I'm exaggerating it. Also, something strange on the Olympus. It worked great when I first picked it up. I mean i pressed the shutter button and could see live view and take pictures. Later I picked it backup and pressed the shutter button and nothing would come on screen. I had to keep pressing it until it finally came on. I don't know why. I did not experience this on the GF2. I loved the small form factor. I wasn't so keen on the performance. Hope that doesn't offend anyone. edit: also the oly seemed to take longer in between shots.
