    Was looking for a used EP1 to convert for infrared shooting and found a great deal from a guy selling a practically new EPL1/14-42/9-18/ext. mic and a cute little Olympus backpack. Since I wanted the 9-18 to go with my EP2, I jumped.

    Was having fun with the ELP1 - not sent for conversion yet - and got the above shot. Processed quickly from RAW to JPEG in LR3. Probably needs a bit more work for the noise - but I must admit that the EPL1 does handle it very well.
    Thanks for looking,
    Steve

    Gotta love the 9-18mm - and your dog, too. Congrats on both the E-PL1 and the lens!

    Thanks to both of you for the comments. The lens was primarily purchased for landscapes while traveling, but I could not resist using an ultra wide angle's "ability" to distort on Max's cute face.

    I understand completely and have used it for my dog's face, as well as for one of my cat's.
