    EPL-1 as a street camera.

    I've had the urge lately to pick up the new EPL-1, weld the 17mm lens to it, set it to shoot in B&W in aperture priority mode...and just use it as a street camera. The price seems right.

    Anyone have any experience with this camera yet?

    It should set up like an EP1.
    Do you have the finder with the 17?

    I have......
    fn button......LCD on/off
    AF to AEL button
    Lens reset ... Off/no
    power off .... Off

    then just hit the AEL button to focus at your desired distance
    hit the fn button to turn off the screen
    use A mode maybe auto ISO
    make photos...
    If you need AF, just hit the button

    Could be a killer cam for shooting with legacy lenses - having IBIS, flexible exposure (i.e. Shutter priority with Auto ISO, controlling Aperture on the lens barrel, retaining EV compensation) and one touch MF assist zoom + slot for high res EVF.

    Sweet.

    Cheers

    Would there be anything different than with the EP2?
