Just BUY IT,
then you can start looking at all the adapters to use all the old lenses from car-boot fairs,
or you can buy the mZuiko 45mm,
or the great 17mm pancake,
and the VF-2 viewfinder etc etc.

The great thing about the e-pL1 is that upgrading from the older e-510 DSLR you won't take a hit on sharpness, unlike the E-30,e-620,e-P1 and e-P2 which were all softer than my e-410.
The e-pL1 seems indeed to be an E-5 in a cheapo (but solid) body.

Tweaks for me ; Sharpness-1 or -2, AllWhitebalance Green+1, that's all.
