I can understand a bit of reluctance and uncertainty as you consider the shift. I've been exceptionally pleased with the E-PL1, it's 14-42 kit lens and the Lumix 45-200 lens. (I still have my E-1. E-3 and 2 E-410s for similar thoughts, although I'm ready to part with 3 of them now. Yes, my gripped E-1 may be destined for a new home, ouch.)Thank you all for the warm welcome! Still shooting 4/3 for now (and will likely continue to, at least for telephoto), but looking to get into :43:, next vacation perhaps.
