  • Love it!

    Couldn't have asked for a better camera. I have had it for so long and it still works like a champ. I still don't think I have used every feature on the camera yet (I am not a profesional) and it keeps impressing me.

  • Works good for me!

    I am the reason the E-PL1 was made. A point and shooter who wants to move up to a better camera but doesn't want to break the bank. This does that very well and it's not so big that I mind carrying it around. All in all, a good, small (for a DSLR) camera that allows for multiple lens configurations and isn't too much for a beginner to use.
