Default Have E-PL1--Are There Deals on E-Series....

Have E-PL1 and bought a Lumix lens for it--are there some deals on E-Series bodies that would work with the original original 14-42mm kit lens?

Or would it be best to just buy another E-PL1 body?

Hi,

If you're thinking of using the 14-42mm micro 43 lens on an E-series digital slr, you should be aware that it is not possible.

My suggestion would be to look at getting the E-PL1 factory refurbished or Factory Demo which includes 14-42 mm lens available from Cameta Camera @$250USD.

There are other deals out there on both Panasonic as well as Olympus m43 bodies. Just look at the hot deals section in Steve's.

No, I was thinking of the E-PL1s several Micro 4/3 siblings (that I can't keep track of) and I assume they all could use the 14-42mm kit lens.

I don't know how old they are and thought there might be a model that would be a good value.......maybe an E-PL1 body is going to be the best value anyway?

Not interested in gambling on refurbished, though.

For example....I see E-P1 bodies for $279.

Is that one older or newer? More or fewer features?

That is the one that does not have the ability to use any add no's. There is no accessory port on the ep-1. The epl-1 ep-2 ep3, epm1, epl2 are the bodies that can add accessory to. And you can use any m4/3 on any m4/3 body.

I wonder why they did this crazed alphabetical/numerical burst of E-xxx, E-xx, E-x1, E-this, E-that, E-???

Just to keep us guessing and confused?

What accessories can the E-others use that the E-P1 can't?

Anything we absolutely must have?

Does it lack any other features?

Those are their 4/3 dslr, e-5 is the top of the line, e-30 is mid, and e-620 is their entry. Their lens will work on the m4/3 body with and adapter. These are much larger camera and lenses.

All the m4/3 start with EP

I'm talking about Micro 4/3 cameras only......no DSLRs.

All of them are EP, the L model are their light model, plastic body, the M are the mini no flash, small and the EP are their metal body top of the line. The numbers is the number of the type. It is pretty simple actually with the olympus pens.
