  • Excerpt: I use this fantastic cam exclusively with the panasonic 20mm f1.7 lens. As a -have always with you cam- is outstanding and it grows on you as time goes by. I liked the GF1 from Panasonic but the fact it has not a built in stabilization made me opt for the Pen. I don't regret my choice.

An honest review from a average guy just looking for excellent photos

  • Summary: It always amazes me the depth of reviews that are available at websites (dpreview, imaging-resource, to name a few but the list goes on) plus the super-detailed online reviews from pros and fanatics.

A (large) pocket full of photo good times

Geek Chick, Amazon

  • Summary: I have a good friend whose a pro photographer, so when I got fed up with being unable to play with things like depth of field with my point-and-shoot, I asked him what I should get. I wanted some manual control, but on a budget. His instant suggestion? The E-P1.

dSLR picture quality in carry "everywhere" size

E. A. Gonzalez "creative professional", Amazon
14 June 2010
  • Summary: Just what I've been waiting for. The ability to take full control of aperture, iso, shutter speed, etc...and produce high quality images without the bulk of traditional dSLR's. I was so tired of the the limitations of point-and-shoot cameras; small sensor = grainy photos and terrible in low light.

  • Excerpt: Normally, I am a Canon Man, and my preferred kit is my EOS-400D C/W 17-85mm IS lens, backed up with a Canon G10 compact whose lens' focal length just happens to exactly match that of my DSLR - perfect! Well, not quite.

A good camera, but definitely a "niche" camera...

Harry M. Shin, Amazon

  • Summary: 1. For reference sake, I've used many cameras before (film and digital) and thus realize that there is no "perfect" camera. For most photographers who are "into" photography, they will agree with my contention that you need at least two cameras; one for "serious" work (ie typically a DSLR, but not...

Not as versatile as an SLR, but mountains higher than a point and shoot

The Will B, Amazon

  • Summary: I needed something decent to have in my laptop bag when i wasn't lugging around all my SLRs and Lenses. This camera seems to be the perfect blend SLR and Point and shoot. The f/2.8 lens allow me to take great, non-flash photos in low-light situations without an obscene amount of noise.
