    Gotta love the little E-PM1. I thought it was a joke of a camera when I first saw it but I changed my opinion once I realized it could deliver image quality (and focus speed) equal to my E-P3 but in a smaller and lighter package. I wish it had a mode dial like the E-PL3 but I got used to the lack of a mode dial after a while.

    My only real complaint about the E-PM1 is that mine has the common E-PM1 problem where it loses the date and time setting after a while ... so I always have to go into the setup menu and reset the date/time if I want my EXIF data to read correctly.

    My upgrade path took me from the PL1 to the PM1. They're actually very similar cameras, except of course the PM1 is so much smaller. But they function very similarly. After a while I found I really--REALLY--enjoyed the PM1 and it became my favorite camera. Like all Oly cameras, you need to spend time setting it up to your liking.

    Enjoy your new camera; I think you're going to love it.

    EDIT: I see you added the Flipback grip. Good call.
