    Hi, everyone. I Just bought myself an Olympus PEN E-PL2 with 14-2mm lens to try and get into photography. Lets see how I go.

    I was going to buy an E-PM1 but the IBIS problems some people seem to be having put me off, plus I managed to get this kit approx £100 cheaper so it gives me some money to play with for a pancake lens, probably a 14mm panasonic f/2.5 and some accessories :smile:

    Welcome from West London!

    I wasn't aware of IBIS issues with the E-PM1. A problem with online discussion forums is that minor issues can get blown out of all proportion.

    Nice! I am sure you will enjoy it -- fantastic kit. I scored the 14mm for £95 on eBay so hopefully you will too!

    And you have such beauty to photograph in Dorset. Love the coastline, Corfe Castle, etc.

    That price would do me. Here are some I've taken so far after 1 day of ownership using the iAuto mode and 14-42mm lens. My previous camera was a normal compact so with this camera I'm looking forward to learning a bit more about 'proper' photography :smile:

    I'm liking the dramatic tone effect :smile:

    The price also swayed me, this was £100 cheaper than I could get the E-PM1 kit for.
