Wife might buy me an E-P3 to replace E-P2, but is it a step down in some ways?

One thing to note about the E-PL* and E-PM* series that I personally don't like is the size and aspect ratio of the LCD screen.  These models fill the screen in 16:9 ratio.  If you shoot anything else then the image is pretty small and has black bars at the sides.  The E-P2, E-P3, and E-M5 have the 3:2 ratio screen.  It makes a difference being able to see what's in focus... or not
