I've been using the EPL-1 and the 14-42 Mk II for about 3 or 4 months and have not been happy with the pictures since day one. They're just not as sharp as I think they should be. Bought a G2 off this forum and have been very happy with it using the 14-42 MK II. The pictures are noticeably sharper and colors richer than the EPL-1 even with the EPL-1 set at vivid. Knowing the reputation of the EPL-1 I figure it has to be something I am doing wrong. I shoot auto on both cameras. I figure the cameras know a lot more than I do at this point in my skill level. I've tried setting the focus box to 14X and that may be helping some, but not enough. One web site rates the G2 highly for sharpness and color which mirrors the results I'm getting. I'm just not understanding why I'm not getting better results out of the EPL-1. Would much welcome any input on what I am doing wrong or what I should be doing. Thanks.
