Not DOA while mirrorless have such pathetic battery life.
In reply to Adventsam, Oct 7, 2012

I took my E-P3 away for an overnight tramp - went through 2 batteries and onto a third for approx 390 photos. No flash used.  And changing batteries while walking on slippery clay and rock is not fun. Even a poor DSLR performance will turn in 500-600 shots. Love the camera, but if mirrorless wants to be taken seriously then some better performance is urgently required - either bigger batteries or reduced consumption.
