Olympus EPL2 or Sony NEX-C3 for me?
Nov 2, 2011

They're within $50 of eachother, quite often.

I really like the colors and contrast of the Olympus EPL2 - the "look" the Olympus processor gives images is preferable to me, with its slightly brown/warm tint.

But I really like the higher ISO abilities of the Sony NEX-C3 and added detail (but the added detail is arguably a nul point due to the cheap lens). I dislike the "look" that Sony gives, which to me always looks overexposed and too green.

What I am trying to decide is whether I should go with the camera that seems more fun and which will take reasonably good pictures - the Olympus - or go with the Sony that will capture a bit more detail but require more work adjusting the images afterwards.

Beyond that, I worry I will really miss the low-light ability of the Sony. The ability to take pictures in a relatively dark indoor setting, like most parties, seems like something I'd be abandoning if I did not get the Sony.

Anyone else gone through this choice?
