    E-P1/2 vs. G1 buffer and write speed

    I wonder if anyone with hands-on experience with both the Panasonic G1 and Olympus E-P1(or 2) can comment on which camera performs better in the "RAW-shooting-buffer-and-write-speed" category. I have the G1 and am looking hard at the E-P2. The G1 sometimes leaves me waiting as far as this is concerned. I have the Olympus E3 and am used to its buffer. I know it's not a fair comparison but I still wish the G1 buffer/write speed was more impressive. A faster card may improve performance. Still I wonder if the Pen is more responsive than the G1 in this respect. Anyone with first hand experience?

    Best regards,
    Ziggie

    I got a class 10, 8gb card from Panasonic, and it still only gets 7 raw images before it stops, thats in the GF1. You would think if it was going to be better, this combo would show it.
