    You can pick up an e-pm1 for £356 from of all places Curry’s. With the £50 cashback that’s effectively £306, new and delivered.

    Best Buy have have the 20mm f1.7 @ £239

    Ordered both yesterday.

    My opinion , Instead of EPM 1 , why not EPL3 ? Top up some $$$ , you get the IQ equal with EP3 .
    If budget limitation is the first , then EPL1 likely fill the bill .

    • Forester

      E-PM1, E-PL3 and E-P3 all have the same IQ!

    • Zorg

      With E-PM1, you already have IQ equal to E-P3.
      E-PM1, E-PL3 and E-P3 all have exact same IQ, only the body is different.

    As others have said – same IQ. Cost not a factor for me, but size and weight were more important than the extra features on the E-PL.
