    I bought an EPL2 :biggrin: I really enjoy that little grip and reduced weight. Doesn't feel quite as brick like (you could probably kill somebody with an EP1), but I don't mind going a little lighter. It does feel alot more responsive in everything it does, focus is quite a bit faster, as are the art filters... I'm happy I bought it... Think I will give the EP1 to my son along with the new kit lens. The kit lens is quite a bit smaller than the previous versions, about the diameter of the Panasonic 14 2.5


    Here's a couple photos from my way home from the camera store.

    I really love the EP1, but I love this one just a little bit more.

    Congrats on the new camera. Did you use one of the art filters on these photos? Love that bottom photo.

    These are awesome pictures!!

    I had a huge dilemma when choosing a M43 camera - Olympus with their awesome art filters and Panasonic with their HD video capability without time limitations. Ultimately, the HD video without time limitations won me over but I kept on hoping that somehow Panasonic would have art filters as well...

    These pictures are making me doubt my decision all over again! Hehehe... :)

    So what accessories are you already craving? EVF? Screen protector?

    Thanks for the comments. I will probably not buy any accessories other than a gordys strap(it's on it's way). I am really enjoying this camera, the speed difference between this and the EP1 is drastic. The new kit lens focuses super fast , faster then the pana 20 1.7 ... but not as fast as the 14 2.5 ...

    The next thing I buy will be the 45 macro , but I'm holding out in hopes of an olympus 50 F2 macro for M43 .

    I really LOVE the dramatic tone art filter.. Here's a couple from 10 minutes ago

    LOL... I just sold my DSLR and a bunch of lenses .. so I'm good :biggrin:

    Only got one lens to sell ... anybody need a Sigma 50 1.4 for Nikon ? or an EP1 ? I think it's to much camera for my 8 year old.

    JustShootMe,

    I don't usually sell stuff, mainly because I'm lazy and I don't have a Paypal account setup for it.
