    Hello everybody. Bought an E-PM1 last week - so far absolutely blown away by the portability and IQ. I'm mostly using the Panasonic 20mm at the moment, and loving it. The kit lens seems primitive in comparison, but is probably pretty good.

    Look forward to getting to know you all.

    Welcome to the forum. I love my E-PM1 w/Oly 45 and Panny 14 but I was having troubles using it with Panny 20 in low light (couldn't lock focus).

    Welcome aboard! As you can see, I have the E-PM1 as well. Actually, the kit lens isn't bad and is fast-focusing. So don't write it off, especially for travel. But my favorite lenses on this camera, like Art above, are the Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 and the Olympus 45mm f1.8. It's like camera and lens were made specifically for each other.

    Thanks for the warm welcome all. Must admit I had noticed the 20mm hunting for focus a bit, but it has all been low light shooting so far. The sun's out today so I'll see how that goes.

    I'll post some images later - December in this area tends to be a bit flat, but I'll see what I can make of it.
