So basically the features 'missing' are not all that important if using it
as a 2nd camera?

In 35 speak, is the Panasonic a 20 or 40?

I may have to look into this for me :->

E-PL1 is the value leader of the three. Same sensor, same processor, and a
pretty useful flash that can fire the remote flashes and use iTTL in the
process. A little more polycarbonate in the body, but it doesn't feel
plasticy. I enjoy mine a lot, with the adaptor that takes the full-size 4/3
lenses. The one thing I don't like is that the eye-level EVF is too
expensive. One of Panasonic's lenses is a winner, the Leica-formulated 20mm
f1.7 in Micro 4/3.

Friend looking at the Olympus E-PL1 and asked about it.  Staples has a
package with backpack, 2nd battery, some software for $550. Went to the
Olympus site and see about it and there are 3 version of the P series.
Differences are not obvious on their site, anyone here know???
