Thanks for the info, i'll be looking for that setup, though the way it's looking, i might end up sticking with a smalll, flat point and shoot, i'm needing something i can have on my person at all times, something pocketable, not much larger than a cell phone.

Can you recommend a particular 20mm pancake lens for the epl? The Panasonic 20mm 1.7 seems incredibly popular.

As far as pancakes go the panasonic 20mm 1.7 is a great lens. Images are sharp and bokeh or the out of focus areas with shallow depth of field look awesome. That lens does a little 'rattle snaking'(focusing sound) on some of the olympus cameras but functions just fine. It is a bit bigger in size than the zukio/olympus 2.8 pancakes but the image quality is better. If I coud only keep one m4/3 lens it would be that guy

FYI here it is at B&H.

I took some quick test pictures with the EPL-1 with the Panasonic 20mm lens vs. kit lens.

First is kit lens, 30, 4.1, 200 iso.


Second is the Panasonic, 30, 1.7, 200 iso.

Exposure looks better with the 20mm but the focus looks a bit off but that probably because you're shooting at f1.7. What was your light source? Seems like there is a blue cast.

Trying out 500px and I need to upload some of the portraits I've been taking with the 20mm. I constantly switch between the Panny 20mm and the Oly 45mm 1.8. Thats another great lens. HERE are some photos using both of them.

Good eye, the blue is from the blue cloth shades in the window. In my comparison I was only looking into how this lens allows in more light.
