I ordered a Canon G12 from Best Buy,and took home two batteries
for it and a bag...

When I got home ... I realized ... I have a choice ;
the G12 with the 2 batteries + bag + 3year plan was $688.00!;

Olympus E-PL1 with two lenses was $700.00 !!

So I went back and "switched" my order; and got a better price
too then I thought - $600.00 + 2year plan for $99.00 !!

688 vrs. 699 !! .... choice !

Well - this E-PL1 is NOT quite the Panasonic GH1 (I wanted);
BUT SURE IS AN AWESOME SECOND!

Got the camera + 14-42 , I'll pick up the 40-150 on the 10th.

So, happy pics to follow.

Oh, and NOTHING against the Canon G12 ; I'm SURE it's awesome.
But,for me,/the same money spent... !!!
So far - I'm loving this camera.!

(To have the option of shooting square - is an awesome thing.)!
And this camera has a pinpoint focus option thing ... I have had such problems with my P+S's in this area...
and to boot - this camera is SLR size sensor.(Same as Olympus SLR's)

I forget it goes past f8,because it's a P+S size camera!
It's smaller than BOTH my P+S cameras ; Nikon 8400 and
Canon SX 30 IS !! And lighter !!!
