I have been using my EPL-1 and various lenses in producing digital walking tours for a local wilderness area. Visitors to the park can download the tour to their music player or phone and they can have it with them while they walk the trails. It has closeups of birds (that most folks likely will never see because they are tiny high up in the trees and brown) recording of calls and in a few sections some images of things of interest that cannot approach easily or at all due to restrictions or terrain. It was the core project of my Masters and the folks I did it for were pleased so I am doing 4 more for them. I used the EPL-1 to capture video and stills (as well as a few P&S cameras I have and using creative commons and public domain images as well). Of the different equipment I've used the EPL-1 has been great because it is easy trek around with, image quality is terrific and the video much better than I expected it would be. I'm sure any of the other Pen models or Panasonic equivalents would also work well. On my next project I need to do some closeups and macros (insects and flora) and I started looking for a decent solution. The 14-42 kit lens is pretty good but I needed to get closer. I wanted AF as what I am doing is not true macro I just need to get close and sometimes stuff is in a place where manual focus might not be feasible (like me hanging off a branch upside down). I started looking at the Olympus FT 35 and 50 macros then I realized that for $200+ I might be able to go another way and get some more flexibility. I picked up a used Panasonic LX3 (I'd used one a few times so I know roughly what to expect). It gives me AF, decent closeup, good image quality, very good video and AF. I even get WA at 24mm that my collection of lenses doesn't give me. I'm looking forward to putting it through its paces. I'll let everyone know how it works out.
