Well, I learned a big lesson today about the E-P1, MF lens, lots of light and (2) 1 year olds playing in a fountain. DON'T TRY IT. All I could do was hit and miss without a VF and AF. Got maybe 10%, but they were pretty good. I'm used to getting 50-60% with DSLR. Live and learn means that I have a lot to learn about using the E-P1 for children candids. If anyone have any tips, let's hear them. With a 1 year old granddaughter, I will be doing this quite often. THANKS. Durr
If you have LOTS of light you should be able to maintain a pretty high shutter speed even stopped down. If you are stopped down you should have enough DOF to be able to zone focus and get the kids in focus. Probably takes some practice but you can try first on non moving objects just to make sure what you want is in focus without focussing on it.
Three from an afternoon walk around town with the E-P1+kit lens:
Peaceful study spot
The latest hybrid vehicle
Music on the lake
Other than a cost savings on tires I'm trying to make sense of the hybrid.
Couple with the E-P1+CV 75mm f/2.5 Color-Heliar

Sneaking view into the confessional
This little bat tried to find a silent place for the day. To hide and to sleep. Just about 5-7 cm bodysize !! It tried to crawl into the clearance between door frame and door leaf. Brave fellow...
