    I have now owned and sold an E-P2, an E-PL1 and my recent purchase an E-P1. Can't seem to get used to the Pens. Also swapped a G1 for a GH1.

    Bought a Fuji "bridge camera" (HS10) which has a 24-720mm (30x) zoom plus 1cm macro. It's close in size and weight to the GH1, which I'll keep. Will probably sell my 7-14 and 100-300 lenses.

    Tempted by an X100 - oops I didn't say that!! :rofl: Must wait for the second generation by Fuji.

    Luckily I'm not as fickle in personal relationships as I am with cameras. :thumbup:

    Why would you swap a d7000 for a d90?

    To buy the GF1 with the difference :)

    Truth is that D90 is a very well build and capable camera and I haven't miss too much the superior AF, ISO capabilities and DR of the D7000. Ergonomically they are about the same, D7000's weather sealing of no use because I do not own weather sealed lenses :)

    I have an E-PL1 and an E-P1. I should sell the E-P1, but I like it better. If it had the accessories port for the VF2 it would be the keeper. I just can't justify upgrading to the E-P2.

    Later that day: Strangely, since this morning an odd set of circumstances has led to me selling my e-p1 and buying a refurbished e-p2 from B&H. I'm pretty sure if I hadn't written this note I would not have been thinking about it and missed the chance. So, me too.:)

    No laws against camera bigamy...

    If there were, most of us would be in jail!

    E-P2 just arrived and the battery is charging. I like the silver on the E-p1 better but the VF-2 fits on the new one. I am waiting patiently. :dash2:

    Hehe... the silver finish was one of the points that kept me holding onto my E-P1 for so long... besides money, of course. ;)

    However, I actually find I like the styling of the E-PL2 better now. I never knew black could be so sexy... xD Black finishes were never this sexy on any DSLR I've owned.
