post 38 will give you a good idea how much smaller the epl-1 is to you xsi. The FZ 40 and canon sx30 are about the same size as the epl1.

Shoturtle, I don't know how to get to post 38. I have been reading about the Oly EPL-1 and the EPI, is there a big difference in these two?

ok after doing some online research, have decided will probably get a Panasonic FZ100 or 35, as a second camera, instead of a smaller (EPL1) dslr. With the money savings, could get another lens, one I could leave on most of the time, for my xsi. Any suggestions? Something like the efs 17-85, or 28-125?

The FZ's are very good megazooms. And it will be a great little travel camera to go along with the XSi. Just keep the iso at 800 and below and you will have very good results.

The FZ35 is at a all time low in price. So that can save you a bit more money.
