Olympus E-PL1 Sample Photos

As part of my upcoming review of the Olympus E-PL1, I have spent some time capturing images in a number of different situations.  It will be a little while still before the review is complete; however, I wanted to pass along these sample images for you to check out.

All images were captured in JPEG format (although I shot in RAW + JPEG, I have not edited all of the RAW files yet).  I have noted the basic shot info below each image.  Feel free to download any of these sample images for your personal inspection (not for republication).  You can get the original files by right-clicking on any of the images and choosing “Save link as…”

    One thing I don’t recall reading about in various reviews of these four-thirds cameras is how they are to hold and handle. Do they feel and handle like a dSLR even though you don’t press them up against your face?

    Do they feel heavier because you have to hold them out in front of you where you cannot pull your arms in towards your body for leverage?

    Anyone have some good experience with this question?
