    After becoming interested in the new Pen camera I found the Panasonic L1 and it looks like a very interesting camera. I really like the fact everything can be set physically as opposed to going into a menu etc. It is about 3 years old now but I am still interested. Anyone have any experience with the camera?

    A few things that is making me consider this over the Pen.
    Price - L1 is about 300~400 used E-P1 is about 800 new
    Optical view finder - L1 has one although dark but still there
    Physical manual controls - L1 has fully on dials for shutter and aperture (with the right lens).
    Built-in bounce flash

    The resolution is only 7.5 million pixels but my 30d about the same and I am more than satisfied.

    I have to say though that I am very impressed with the high ISO samples from the Pen... who would have thought this possible even a few years ago.
