Perfect street / general kit.

Hi John,

I like the E-P3 very much indeed, even more than the EM-5. Too bad the 12mp sensor lacks high iso capabilities compared to the new 16mp one. The 2 lenses you mention plus a pro standard zoom would probably be all I need

Hi Marcello,

If it helps, I regularly use the E-P3 up to iso 1250 with all noise reduction off in jpeg with virtually no noise and very sharp, colourful images.
Good luck with your choice.
