Pilot 2 be
Excellent little camera that has the flexibility of an SLR with the size of a point and shoot. I have another point and shoot camera, and a few SLR's. This camera is great to take anywhere. It takes really great pictures. The lenses are top quality. I am already enjoying the camera a lot. I highly recommend this camera to anyone. I just wish it was a little less expensive.

I think this camera is wonderful. It takes great pictures and comes with software for editting, which I love. The only problem that I have with this camera is that it doesn't perform as well as I hoped it would in low light. I took it sailing under the Super Moon last week and had a terrible time shooting after sunset with it. Otherwise, I would recommend this camera for sure. Best digital I have ever owned!!

I used to lug 100 lbs of camera equipment into caves, up cliffs and down rivers. One week with an olympus pen and I've got more great shots, simply because my whole kit now weighs 18lbs

The E-pl1 has only compact just size, but its quality is big. Good for traveling.

great manual and automatic camera. the ability to use other lenses in a smaller camera is the reason i purchased this camera

I enjoy the PASM modes and all of the controls available for flash, WB, ISO, and gradation. The monochrome mode with filter settings brings back the joy of B&W photography. The one feature I miss in the EPL1 is a remote shutter release.

I traveled half-way around the world for over a month shooting thousands of photos. Not one failure, or even a stumble. My E-PL1 with the M.Zuiko 14-150mm lens performed flawlessly in a very wide range of shooting situations from caves to mountains. It was the only lens I took with me for this camera. I also shot a great deal of HD video which proved to be better than I expected. The VF-2 electronic viewfinder is very versatile in shooting and does a fine job of extending battery life between charges. All in all, I am very pleased with the small size, rugged, high performance quality of this camera.

I've had a DSLR for several years, but what I've wanted was something more portable and a bit less complex but with interchangeable lenses and a few. ie. Point and shoot was too small, SLR was too large.
My Pen I love tho. I CAN shove it in a pocket, I CAN do serious macro and Telephoto photography, and I love it.
The only thing I want to point out is the autofocus can hunt a bit, but a quick setting can correct that. I won't bore you with the howto, just google it, you can't help but find it.
Overall, GREAT camera!

Lovely camera, my first up-market digital and I am very happy with it so far. Still have lots to learn about its capabilities though!
