Does anyone own/use an Olympus E-PL1?
I'm currently considering buying the Olympus E-PL1 but not sure I'm quite ready to pull the trigger on it. I need to buy a camera before October but need the following: decent low-light photos, light enough where I won't lose an arm walking around a convention floor all day, manual controls, under $600.
The E-PL1 is a great little (compared to an SLR) camera. However, the FIRST need you mention is low-light and I don't feel that is a particular strength. With the $300 Panasonic F1.7 20mm lens it can do pretty well in low light, and it's better than almost any reasonably priced compact camera (even with the kit zoom lens), but it isn't really comparable to even a "consumer"-grade SLR in terms of low light ability.
