The Olympus PEN E-PL1 sells for under R8000 and brings its relatively compact body with regular DSLR sensor size and interchangeable lens system to a wider audience.
PROS
Flash included this time, compact size, easy to use guides for beginners.
CONS
Chassis has plastic feel, control ring would have made controls easier, too few pixels on LCD screen.
VERDICT
If you don't want the bulk associated with DSLR cameras but still want picture quality much better than what compacts can offer, the EPL1 is a good choice.
