    So far I love how compact it is. Coming from using Nikon DSLR's the LCD screen resolution is not as i'm accustomed to. That's the only gripe I have about the camera. Other than that shooting in the manual modes is very nice. Although the majority of camera adjustments are menu driven it is VERY easy to get to (i'm used to having all the buttons accessible on the camera with Nikon). I may pick up another one for me , maybe wait for the EP-3,as this particular one is for my wife. I'd love to pick up a Voigtlander Nokton 25mm f/0.95 as well. I need to still purchase a D3s first as I need the speed and ISO performance. I'm having fun with this camera for the time being. :2thumbs:

    I'd kill for that screen, the one on my E-P1 is almost as bad as the one on my 5D Mk1!

    Yeah the 5d MK1's screen is like Nikons D2x's... old technology. Even Nikon's flagship compact the P7000 has a 920k dot LCD screen. Oh well.

    The 5D is of course old now, but it still produces lush images and is a great way to go full frame, I got mine at a bargain price and I love it to bits. Just glad it survived me dropping it last week when I destroyed my 50 1.4 :(

    Learn how to setup the SuperControlPanel - it will make changes much faster & easier :smile:

    Ahh, figured it out. The super control panel would benefit me if I had a view finder though.

    I second this. All the reviews talk about how hard The E-PL2 is to fuss with . I never get that with SuperControl.

    Have fun, I was so happy I upgraded to this from the E-PL1. It was totally worth it.:2thumbs:

    You want a bad screen. Check out the one on the Leica M9 I just got. 7K and far worse than a 5D mk1. So bad that I'm not sure if I'm actually looking at the same image. But it does make my Pen screens look fantastic.
