If I was going to pay this amount, I'd put another £100 to it and buy an SLR

Same price at Argos but with a £10 voucher for spend over £100.

Each to their own

This is much smaller and lighter than a DSLR whilst still retaining decent image quality

The best camera is the one you have with you

I would agree, I have two dslr bodies with a range of lens but I am looking for something more compact for those times when you simply cannot take a dslr along.

For the same price you can have a Panasonic G10 which is almost the same size and weight but with an EVF and better handling. IQ is similar, maybe even a little better in low light. Since neither will fit in your pocket why compromise?

Oh and with the Panasonic G10 you get Photoshop Elements 9 and Premiere Elements 9 for free!

Dimensions (W x H x D) 114.6 x 72.2 x 41.5 mm (without protrusions)



Depth is significantly different going by that, probably because of the Oly having IBIS so its not needed on the lens

GF1 is probably a more comparable Panasonic to the E-PL1 .. the G10 is more of a DSLR style shape

Some people would argue the Oly JPEG engine is better

Since neither will fit in your pocket why compromise?


Not sure what this is getting at... with the 20mm or 14mm Panasonic lenses it would just about fit in a pocket... but only compacts are really pocket-able comfortably

Each lens in the m43 system is smaller than the DSLR equivalent and the bodies are smaller

The Olympus 9-18mm is amazingly small for a wide angle zoom and only weighs about 155g

Theres a few types of m43 user but these are 2 common ones:
-The person fed up with lugging around a DSLR system
-The person who wants more power/control than a compact/bridge

[I have a G1 and don't own an Olympus body, but there have been some good deals going about on them]

Or pay a bit more for the XZ-1 which is much smaller and has a great lens
