Excerpt: Extremely versatile, provides all the control and flexibility of my old 33mm SLR, with the benefit of many auto options. Lens are a very good quality, I've blown up 150mm (300mm equiv.) to 10X actual and the quality is amazing. Terrific value as well.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I have been looking for a smaller camera to subliment my dsr. My canon with a zoom lenes and tripod gets heavy in the late afternoon.<br />With the camera stabilization and the range of the ISO, I have been getting some very nice images without a tripod with the 14-42 lens and a lot less weight to carry. I ready enjoy the multi image and the the other special effects built in such a small package. I still need a tripod when using the 40-150 lens.
Summary: I've only had this camera for a couple of months, but it is a very good system. I've wanted to get back into photography beyond just holiday & dog snapshots. With two interchangeable lenses, this system adds a lot of abilities without the high costs & weight of DSLR cameras. The compact system cameras are good for amateurs who want more control over the picture. It allows me to focus, set the field of depth and aperture or leave any or all of that to the camera.
Excerpt: I am a professional videographer/Photographer, I got this camera 2 weeks ago and already filmed 2 weddings with it and I must say I am very impressed with it, the colors and the auto focus just amazing. It is like a Royce Royce engine in a little Fiat body.... I am thinking of getting another one to use on a tripod. The battery life is amazing, on my DSLR I have to use 5 batteries for a wedding for 12 hours, now I only use 2 and they recharge pretty fast.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great stabilization, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Sweet little camera, great price, just a few minor glitches.

Summary: I've been wanting to compare a Micro 4/3rds camera against my DSLR for years. After my daughter managed to fall off a mountain, (destroying a Nikon D60 in the process) I decided to bite the bullet and replace it with something smaller. So far I've taken the camera on one extended photo shoot, and my daughter has taken it to the Philadelphia Flower Show, so these are my initial impressions: Pros: * In bright light the images are easily as sharp as those taken with my...
