The thumbs-up is almost essential imho for M8/M9. While it is quite a pricey piece of brass, it improves the camera handling by a degree that you wouldn't expect from such a minimal addition...

For the nominal resolution this is correct, but it doesn't say a lot about the detail capture or actual resolution, given the M8's lack of an anti-aliasing filter and choice of excellent lenses. The...

yeah, the jpg engine doesn't seem to be especially good, with the in-camera b&w even worse. however, the lens seems to be ok, for example:

Don't really see the better resolution compared to the M8, but it does look pretty decent. Seems like a great second digital body in addition to the M8, though to be fair it's still unclear which one...

I find the Olympus E-PL1 (with the EVF) to be a near-perfect companion for my M8. I use it for the odd wide-angle shot with the 150g 9-18mm (18-36 equiv), as a 2x tele-converter for my M lenses with...
