I just purchased an E-PL1 last week and have found myself pulled into the world of micro 4/3 cameras. I love the form factor, picture quality and videos from the E-PL1, but am less than thrilled with the AF lag. I purchased the camera in anticipation of my daughter's birth later this month and from my experience taking pictures when my son was little focus speed is critical. I would rather not go the DSLR route, but the speed difference is hard to get past. I need to check out the GF-1 which seems to have a faster AF as well as play with some lens/body combos, from my research it appears that the AF issues with the Pen series can be mitigated by using Panny lenses. As for a DSLR I have my eye on the Nikon D5000, but I am not convinced the video will be as good and I love the size of the micro 4/3 format. Anybody else in the same boat and any recommendations are greatly appreciated. I enjoy the site, some very talented photographers here with tons of knowledge.
