Bought an EP2 - Firmware question

After thinking about it for several months, I finally bought an EP2, VF2 and 17mm kit from Ffordes.

Usual excellent service from Ffordes ordered it at 11am yesterday and it was in my hands noon today.

With the pana 14-42PZ lens on it focuses really quickly and easily goes into my jacket pocket. So now the G2 will be sold.

I could have bought a pana GX1 plus LVF2 for only 70 more, but I am very happy with the EP1 (except for no EVF), and did not fancy having to learn a new camera, do not want 16MP nor yet another type of battery and charger.

So the EP2 it is and so far it seems to be everything I could wish for.

Mine has firmware 1.1. I understand that firmware 1.2 only added capability to use the VF3. Is this so, or does it make any other improvement?

Appreciate anyones experience with this.
