Just bought an E-P1 w 17mm lens and optical VF. Other cameras are a Nikon D90, an ancient Rollei, a Voigtlander R3A, and a Nikon film slr. Wanted a mu43 camera because I like the size and weight of the Voigtlander, would like that in a digital camera and can't afford a Leica!

I was actually thinking of an EP-2 or a GF1 w the Panny 20mm, but the local camera store had an irresistible offer on the EP1 saving hundreds of pounds. Looking forward to learning the camera and using it, also planning to get M- and F- mound adapters for other lenses.

I have a flickr stream here

(with only 1 bad E-P1 photo as yet!)

Now then Chris

Sounds good, what was the bargainness of all that then?

I was farting about with the NEX & 16mm lens in the Sony shop yesterday ... found the lens just too wide for my use, wouldn't want one.
16x1.5=24 equiv, 17x2=34mm equiv ... is the Oly 17mm a more reasonable view cos it sounds better?

The 17mm is fairly wide ... I'll see if I get used to it.

The deal at Jacobs was £399 which compared with £629 for the GF1+20mm and more than £1000 for the E-P2+20mm+EVF (which is what I really wanted, but £600+ difference wouldn't justify).

I spent the first thirty of my years in Bristol (Filton, Little Stoke, Kingswood)... will enjoy going through your Bristol Flickr pages. Now living a couple of thousand miles West and not getting back to visit very often.
