Which would you keep - EP3 or X100?
Jul 2, 2012

I have a real dilemma, I'm buying the OM-D but I need to sell another camera to cover the cost. The cameras in question are the EP-3 or the X100. I love both these cameras for different reasons. The EP3 has a lot to like about it, touch screen focusing, digital level, fast focusing etc etc. The X100 has that lovely ovf/evf, excellent flash capability and is just a lovely (if not quirky) camera overall. The tech specs will tell you that the X100 edges the EP3 on IQ but at base ISO (where I mostly shoot) the EP3 is no slouch IMHO. At higher ISO's it's a no contest, the X100 is clearly better. I have a feel for which way I'm likely to go but I'm interested in how other people see it and why?
