Shall I trade E-PL1 for E-PL2??



Just noticed on ebay I've been given an ebay voucher for 15% off anything over 50, max discount 100. Expires 5th Dec.

That means I could buy a new E-PL2 with 14-42 for around 258 delivered.

I reckon my boxed E-PL1, with over a year's warranty left, would be worth, what, 200?

So that's 60 for... larger screen, faster focusing, rear dial (a la XZ-1), better build (?). Anything else???

So, is it worth 60 to trade up? Anywhere cheaper than 258!?

I don't think I would bother, put toward a new lens?

If you've got the rest of the money for the new lens, I'm sure Yorky's right. However, if not, I think it's worth the 60 - I much prefer using my EPL-2 and have just sold my EPL-1 body. The screen size and the other factors you mention made a real difference in the 'user experience' for me, and, irrelevant though it may be to the actual photographs, I think the EPL-2 is a nicer design with the smaller diameter of the kit lens, smaller buttons etc.
