I know I haven't been active on the forum for quite some time now. Just an update - last May I decided to go for the E-PM1, see what the faster AF and other upgrades are on the new PENs. Here's one of the keepers I had using that camera: Julia in New Jersey I decided the AF is indeed much improved, but as the days went by I really felt restricted by the screen, so I returned it in exchange for an E-PL3, and that has been my main camera since then. Even my 6-year old daughter has taken a liking to it, claiming it as her own. ("Dad, why are you using my camera?! You're using up space in the card!") Here are a few pics using the E-PL3: Taken by said 6-year old girl, with some PP by me. Last week we were at the beach everyday. After a day's work, why not? Using an adapted Sigma 55-200 for Canon EOS. Outside @ about 11PM, with only a small bulb at the deck. Again using the Sigma lens.
