E-PL1 with the Top Pro lenses: a teaser

There is a lot of news floating around the web these days regarding Olympus's first really affordable non-SLR system camera, the E-PL1. For various reasons, we are excited to finally have this camera at our disposal. It is not only its 12 megapixel sensor and the possibility to re-test the Top Pro lenses that makes this unit interesting, but also checking out the new imager-based AF and its video recording capabilities. We shall come back to these topics in the near future. So far, the collapsible 14-42mm lens looks fine to us, but as usual, we shall be putting emphasis on the Top Pro gear. As a first shot at the matter, please consider the monster the E-PL1 and the 14-35mm f2.0 forms together (using the MMF-2 adapter, bundled to the E-PL1 DZK)....
