    Thanks all, i'm sure I will have many questions, as this is my 1st foray into micro 4/3's and also Olympus Camera's...

    Currently my family has/uses a Canon T2i, and a Sony Alpha A65.

    We like shooting cars, and nightshots of cars...

    Here is a shot of my Camaro, shot under the stars using the A65:

    My family has been trying to perfect these type of shots, if done right, they can have a very unique look, I am hoping that I can do similiar with the EPL-1.

    the EPL-1 will be a welcomed addition, and I am rather excited to get it, and hopefully it is everything I think it will be, and then I'll get a OMD-5 next....

    I love these small cameras as opposed to our bulky DSLR's or SLT's, which are not as inviting.....

    And the lens selection is outstanding, of course I am not saying anything you folks don't already know....

    here is another nightshot of a friends Camaro..

    My Panasonic 20mm f1.7 just arrived, and also my EPL-1......

    Still waiting on the 14mm....

    Here is maybe a dumb question, but do I have to update the firmware on the Camera?

    and what about the lenses, do they get a firmware update?

    On the Olympus You update it using the Olympus update software. It'll both update the lens and the camera body.

    1.1 is latest 20 1.7 firmware
    1.2 is latest PL1 firmware
