Really nice video. Love the shallow dof at times.

Your video confirms two things I've found about E-PL1:

1) Close ups are no problem. Try put the subjects/scene 10 ft away and don't zoom in too closely, that's where usually (not always) issues arise, such as blood-less faces and blown highlights. So far my solution is to reduce EV by -0.3 and keep an eye on (auto) WB.

2) Old lenses do video. The only problem is shakiness and warping at 100mm or longer focal length. Then DeShaker is the solution and don't use IBIS. See how effective DeShaker is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uL0fnunj0BI
