EP1 270, worth considering?

Hi All

I stumbled across an ebay seller listing refurbished EP1's with 14-42mm lens for 270 posted.

Its a superb price from what i can see, and originally i was looking for a good point and shoot to keep in the pocket when on the river hoping to bump into a salmon that can record video, an E3 isn't much fun to carry about for a full 12 hours.

I have read the various reviews and the main niggle seems to be the auto focusing time but my primary interest is in the video capturing capability. How do current users rate it?

For speculative shots or for a quick picture of my quarry before it swims on,

it started life as a 10 shot panorama, -6 degrees on the Tay in March
