I've been shooting with the E-PL2 for the last several days and I'm starting to get a good feel for the camera's strength and limitations. I'm actually pretty impressed. I like the form factor, in fact I'm not sure I'd pay the premium to get an E-PL3. AF is slower than my G3 and so is the shutter lag, but once you figure your timing, you can start nailing shots. I sort of wish it had a touch screen, but the button/scroll wheel works pretty fast. The lack of the AF assist light isn't so bad, as long as you're not shooting in complete darkness. OOC jpegs are amazing as everyone has been saying. The ability to adjust gradation is a great touch and I wish other camera brands...cough*Panasonic*cough...would implement it! It's a little on the big side, but it has a very good grip. Olympus paint scratches easy, which I find a little annoying. Other than that, I have to say this camera is a great deal. I'm sort of tempted to get another one now! For the price/performance ratio, it's probably one of the sweet spot cameras in the m43 line-up. It almost feels like a sleeper camera as even Olympus has seemed to sweep it under the rug, while still pushing the E-PL1 as the entry level camera.
