Hello, My name is Bobby I'm new to the fourm and a new owner of an EPL1. I've been a Canon DSLR shooter for years, But have always had a compact of some type. My current compact is a Canon S95 and now an Olympus EPL1. I like the S95 ok and it's very good for just general snap shoots. But it just doesn't come close to my Canon bodies. I've been looking at the micro four thirds format for a while now and reading all the post on this site. I really wanted to try one, but couldn't justify $700 just to try out the format. There was no way I would sell a Canon body to fund a micro four thirds camera. Well my local Wolf camera store was going out of business and they had an EPL1 for $200. Well, I could no longer resist. I've only took a couple of shoots with the EPl1 so far and what I've seen is really good. It I had a pro lens I think it would be better than my 60Ds. The only thing it doesn't do well is sports shooting maybe the EP3 or the forth coming EP4 would be better for that. Is it possible the micro four thirds could replace my DLSR bodies? Well, maybe, time will tell. But it will be fun to test the ideal with my new EPL1.
