Opinions Welcome

After using the same camera for a couple of years I am itching for an upgrade. I have narrowed down my search to two options.

Option 1: Canon Powershot SX30    (This reviews on this camera were outstanding.)

Here is the description from the Dell's website:

"The PowerShot SX30 IS from Canon has got you prepared for your next extreme photo opportunity. This point-and-shoot digital camera comes with a massive 35x wide angle optical zoom lens - a first for any PowerShot! It also comes with a 2.7 inch vari-angle LCD, 14.1 mega pixel, high dynamic range, zoom framing assist and much more."

Option 2: Olympus PEN E-PL1

Here is the description from Dell's website.

"Itching to take professional pictures but intimidated by SLRs? Then look no further than the Olympus E-PL1. This camera has it all: high quality, point-and-shoot simplicity, and chic PEN design. Whether capturing an HD movie or snapping once-in-a-lifetime moments, its six special art filters let you paint the world from a great perspective. And with a 100% stabilized body for crisp shots with all lens types, an accessory port and a integrated flash, the colorful E-PL1 really is ready for fun."

So here is where I need your help. Which do you recommend, and why? Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

Happy first day of February!
