This is my first experience with an interchangable lens cam so I cannot compare it to others. However, before buying Olympus, I did my research and figured this is the way I'd go. So far, I love my camera. I have been using it for more than a year and even when I was iffy about it, it has never let me down. I recently purchased the 17mm lens and that's now the lens I always use. I'm very happy with this cam though I really want to get the new OM-D :3 Needles to say, I will continue to be a loyal Olympus user.

It is a simple camera. Easy to use. It takes very good pictures.

I have had the camera for only a few weeks but I am having a great time using it.

Just got back from Sedona AZ and the Grand Canyon. The E-PL1 Camera performed extremely well. The camera really captured the mountains in all their splendor. Great reds of the mountains were captured perfectly. At the Grand Canyon it was a very overcast day but the pictures came out very good.

If you are looking for an excellent entry level Micro Four-Thirds the E-PL 1 is perfect. It has point and shoot plus manual modes.

At first, all the features are daunting but the camera has been designed with intuitive learning in mind. Build quality, although mostly plastic, is solid. The lens I got (14-42) is of the highest quality, despite its lightness. Film speed quality goes from excellent to suprisingly good at the 3200 setting.

Nice pictures in all levels of light. Battery is long -lasting and easy to charge. Battery life was an issue with my former cameras.

I found the camera easy to use and it gave me super results.

I was looking for a more advanced camera than my click and shoot so after reading the reviews I bought this camera. I really like it but it has been hard to learn how to use the camera and I have a hard time with the settings. The hardest part is a clear picture.

The EPL-1 is a great first step out of the point and shoot world and into real photography. If one is at peace with the limitations of the EPL-1 (no viewfinder, 720p video with 7 minute limit per take), it is a wonderful camera. Image quality is unsurpassed. The JPEG's out of the camera and onto your computer are well-balanced, colorful, and rich. I've never taken such good pictures. The camera is very portable and unobtrusive. Functions were easy to learn with a book written for the EPL-1. The micro 4/3 sensor is miles ahead of point and shoot cameras. All this for a fraction of the price of a DSLR, or its sister PEN's. If money is no object, go for a viewfinder, or 1080p video. But I think I learned a lot about photography for a minimum investment, and got some awesome shots.
