Not really...If the lens is really that quiet in movie mode maybe its worth a look. But even then i'll try to get the new lens instead of whole new camera. As it is I do not use ISO above 1600 anyway. I hope there are significant changes internally as far as focusing.
MSC motor is not really that quiet from what I have seen on youtube videos. I am thinking about getting 14-150 or keep 14-42 and get 40-150mm instead. I just bought vf-2 and legacy maco lens so I will have to wait till next month for now.It uses the msc motor from the 9-18 and 14-150 so it will focus faster.
i hope so, since i just get my e-pl1 for a month, and feel wasting money if i have to upgrade to get the higher iso capability and AF speedThe ep2 is 6400iso, and you really did not want to shoot it pass 1250iso. All it is, is a iso expansion. It is what they did with the e-5 as panny would not give them the gh2 sensor. The E-5 is a iso expansion of the epl-1 sensor and AA filter.
One of the most frustrating aspects of the old lens is trying to use a polariser.Yes the new lens has internal focusing, so there are no external moving parts. So a filter won't rotate on it. Good for people using graduated ND filters. On my "old" epl1 kit lens, I now just use a B+W 40.5mm UV/Haze filter and it works fine.
