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.

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.
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.
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.

Excerpt: A GOD send camera, very easy to use and most of the time I put it on auto mode and the result is wonderful! I took over 3000 photos in the last 4 months both indoor and outdoor, wedding, holiday etc and the I would rate photo quality result as 60% good, 10% excellent and 15% out of focus and 15% bad...
Summary: 1. For reference sake, I've used many cameras before (film and digital) and thus realize that there is no "perfect" camera.

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

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.
