    Hello good people,
    I live in Jerusalem and I like to take pictures :smile:
    I mainly use Pentax but I decided I could use a smaller setup for when I like to walk for long periods of time without constantly feeling my camera lagging from my shoulder, So now I have an Olympus E-PL2 with 14-42 II and a brand new Panasonic 20mm pancake.
    So far so good!
    Here's a shot from yesterday before Shabbat:

    Welcome to the forum! That is a really sharp, picture, I just repurchased the 20mm myself. Hope to see more of Jerusalem.

    Thanks! I think in that regard it came out quite good, especially considering it was shot at f2.2. This lens seems to be a winner :D

    It sure did, plus on the epl-2. I used to have an EPL-1 as a backup. They are great little cameras, but wait till you try one with the 16mp sensor like the EPL-5, or the EPM2 and up.

    I tried a GF2 for a while but I did not like it. The E-PL2 is a beautiful camera and I like it's output much better, even though it is obvious that the sensor is inferior to the modern ones.
    I am very impressed of the "new" Olympus sensors so I'm looking for something between E-PL5 and E-M5. I'm not sure about the new Panasonic cameras and I am reluctant to try after my experience with the GF2.
