I sold the EP2 a few months ago because I wanted to use the Zuiko 50mm and 70 - 300mm lenses and there just wasn't enough grip to make that viable, sooo, I recently bought an EPL-1 (body only) purely to enable me to use the two 4/3rds lenses that I've kept. I've found that the shutter button feels very spongy compared to the EP2. Is this normal? Also, since I updated the firmware, I'm finding the autofocus on these lenses is SLOWER! When I first began using them it seemed a little better but now I'm back to where I started. Very strange!

I don't know what the EP2 button feels like, but I don't have any complaints about my EPL1 shutter button. I wouldn't describe mine as spongy.

E-P2/E-PL1 here In rainy Melbourne I find no real differences in Focus lock or shutter actuation with either.
The EP2 has a larger button that's all.
As for the lenses you mentioned re AF (presume they are 43) AF is not fast with these lenses and depends on subject matter and light.
Firmware update would make little diff. if any
With m43 lenses firmware upgrade makes a small improvement depending on the lens.
