    Unhappy Olympus EPL-2 or Canon 550D

    Hey guys, I've been thinking about these two cameras lately. I know they are of different standards but I'm new at photography and really can't make up my mind which I would like to buy. Of course I've been psycho-ed into thinking that the EPL-2 is better than the 550d, but I've been using my friend's canon and I'm afraid I wont be able to learn the Olympus in time for my holiday (next week). But then the thought of lugging such a "bulky" camera (550d) around is scary.

    I don't want to seem like every other kid on the street with a DSLR thats why I thought of getting the EPL-2 cuz its cheaper (two lens for $1300+) instead of one lens for $1300+ (550d)

    PLEASE HELP ME! advice me, argue with me, just help me make up my mind!!

    Thank you in advance lovelies!

    Seems like you've got pretty much your answer, does image quality matter to you a lot? If the answer is no, probably you won't bother so much about quality, it seems to me you're more concerned with weight and portability. The PEN, like the 550D, I believe both can set settings from the camera quite easily, the PEN is smaller which would probably be a lot better. No need to rush to learn, you can just use iAuto mode. The PEN is more of a fun camera in the end especially with the art filters, not sure if the 550D has something similar, but again, seems like weight and size is more or a concern for you
