I saw one in the store when I went to pick up my Nikon lens adapter, and I was stunned by how much clearer than my E-PL1 it was. It really made me regret the E-PL1, because with the EP-2 screen, I might not need the EVF, hence wiping out all I saved by getting the E-PL1. But you can't tell this from the spec, because both LCDs have the same number of dots.ep2 has a much better lcd to work with.
What lenses are you shooting? I just tried some nikons. I can focust but only if I magnify the view.but i have been shooting alot of mf lenses, and have never had a problem getting critical focus on the epl1 on the lcd. the dedicated magnified view button is quite handy too.
