    For those who think the new EPL2 is bigger than the EPL1 just measure and calculate the ratio of width to height and you will find they are the same ie 2.9/4.5 or 0.64. So relatively same size if the widths are same but the body on the rangefinder side has been raised to top of hot shoe which is now recessessed so it looks bigger even with curved top.

    Soin comparison the GF2 will still be quite a bit smaller at least with its small prime lens.

  • How much is the new lens smaller then the old one? (kit lens)

    460k high resolution.. ROTFL…..

    someone should tell olympus that 460k display is not high resolution.
    it´s 2011 not 1999.

      remember, this is not a top model. They have to take care about the price as well.

  • Canon Powershot G11 dead pixels? I’m not as well confident if it is what you call dead pixels, but on the LCD display, you can find little black dots. I realize it’s not dust or dirt on the lens, because it seems in images I’ve taken before I had this difficulty. You will find about three or four black dots within the LCD display, and they’re not too close to each and every other. I bought my digital camera in September. Need to I send it in to Canon to have it fixed?

  • Very good article. I’m going through a few of these issues as well..
