I bought an EPL2 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.
