I handled an E-P3 today
Jul 16, 2011

The local store had the silver E-P3 with 14-42 kit lens on display, so I briefly checked it out for a few minutes. Some thoughts...

  • focus is indeed blazingly fast

  • the touchscreen is very responsive; combined with the focusing speed, I think it's great for street photographers (pretend to fiddle with the thing without leaving your hand on the shutter release button, and snap! you got a pic)

  • 35 focusing points is much more useful compared to E-PL2's

  • silver body is smooth and beautiful, but is a major fingerprint magnet; the top and bottom plates have a different finish though, so only the central area is shiny and smooth

I like it, and will probably/eventually get one myself, but only after I get rid of my E-PL2 and after Capture One officially supports the E-P3's RAW files.
