Well I decided to finally get one, I wanted a walk about and more portable camera than my E-30 so that I could take everywhere and this seamed the perfect choice. I did play with the idea of the Sony NEX, but its so ugly :rolleyes:

I just love the size, I was taking a few shots around a shopping mall today with no one taking any notice, if I did that with my e-30, security would be straight on me :o

So far im very happy with it, I love the new art filters (although just like the e-30 they will soon wear off and not be used) it feels good in your hands and the noise levels are excellent for a camera this size, all useable upto 1600 and I even go to say that the noise is on a par with my e-30 if not slightly better - amazing !!!!

Sorry to bore you but heres a few first shots I took today

The New Diorama Filter I love it :D

Well it looks like you've mastered the menus pretty quick.

Not sure I'll ever warm to the diorama look - but still, it does no harm

Hope you enjoyed your pies.

Somehow I dont think you'll regret buying this camera

The New Diorama Filter I love it :D

I've had fun with the diorama filter on my E-P2. Need to chose the scene carefully, though, or the result looks silly.

Cheers Nick, nope no regrets :D

I found the menus pretty easy to pickup, I have now set the i-auto mode to use the live guide and then all other modes to use the super control panel.

This is a great setup for me and my girlfriend, as she can use it as point and shoot in auto mode and I have more control when I need it

Yes the burger was fantastic thanks, very unusual, a freshly cooked burger with cheese, relish & onions all wrapped in a puffy pastry, will be going back next weekend ;)

I agree the art filters need to be used sparingly and on the right subjects, but hey its all good fun :D

Good look for railway or miltary vehicle modelling backgrounds

Very surprized you didn't use B&W on the cat :D

I too have just got one and I'm finding out just how good this thing really is.

I have an MMF adapter coming soon so I will put my 4/3rds lenses on and give it a good outing.

Yes E-P1Fan thats what I have in mind to do, I think it would work very well

Hey Graham you seam to know me quite well now ha ha :D

How much did you pay for your adapter, as that something I want to get next ?
