Smile E-P2 first impressions

I have had my E-P2 since Friday but, since I work Sat, Sun and Mon, I haven't had a lot of chance to play with it. What I have seen, I'm impressed with.

The EVF is very good and controls are logical though a bit too easy to set by mistake. I also have the MMF2 adaptor which I use with my existing 9-18, and a Mk2 40-150 which I bought cheaply from Currys. This lens in particular works and sits extremely well with the E-P2. Focussing is quite quick, faster than the 9-18, and it's just as light.

For curiosity I weighed the total package and it came in at 2.2 Kg for the E-P2, EVF, 14-42 kit lens, MMF2 adaptor, 9-18 and 40-150, plus spare battery, and Billingham Hadley bag. Not bad!
