Default Got an EPL1

And what a cracking camera it is! Its going to take a while for me to learn all its abilities, but its going to be fun doing it.

I can't believe I can get the camera, kit lens, VF2, 40-150 zoom and 100mm* portrait lens in a bag that's smaller than I used just for my D70

Even my wife is smiling




*ok so its a 50mm OM manual lens but it was only $50

Congrats on your new camera. Was this picture taken with the 50mm?

Enjoy your new camera system. I find the E-PL1 with the VF-2 a pleasure to use. And, as you've found it, it's really a great little performer with older manual focus lenses.

Well done and thanks for sharing.

Indeed it was. Really enjoying focussing manually - brings back memories. I've just got to get better at it

Lots to learn with this camera, but thats the fun of it.

VF2 really helps with manual focus.

That's an understatement! I can MF better through the VF-2 than with my old Ricoh SLR, which had a dual focusing prism.
