    Enjoying it greatly. Different to and complements my E-P2 and E-1. Seems slightly better build quality to G1, though I know it's basically the same chassis. Quicker focussing on most lenses than E-P2. Focus point selection a little awkward, but I'll put it down to my newness at the camera. Good ergonomics.

      Ah, but you can just prod the screen for your focus point

        Yes, and it's that sort of thing I need to get used to. New technology!!

        (is there a quick way of recentering the focus point, as there is on the Pen?)

          I've had mine for about 7 weeks. Still getting to know it but am loving it so far. A little beauty.

            How about some owner reviews on the G2 as I'm considering buying it to compliment my EPL-1.
            Price is very competitive compared to the latest C*n*n 60D, the only one to feature a swivelling screen at present, but not touch sensitive, but it does have other 'advantages', so would anyonne recommend the G2 ?

              Well, of course you can use the same lenses on both your Pen and the G2. And, like the Pen, it is superb if you're into manual focus. And it's so easy to use older third-party lenses.

                Try the Cancel/Delete button while in focus point moving mode (I hope I'm clear). Works for me on the G1 and GH2

                  I wrote a thread about it this summer http://fourthirds-user.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7659. I have deleted some of the to fee up space.

                    I finally got one...
                    Now the fun begins... so much to understand.
                    I got the 14-42 standard kit and some money to buy a new lense - but which one

                    Also got one of those fancy black rapid straps from the MiL - pretty nerat for a slung over the shoulder style.

                    It's late, but I shall be back with hopefully some pics and some q's.
