I am back - new E-PL3 owner
Nov 27, 2012

I had panasonic G2 this summer and it was fine camera. But somehow I just could not "like it" as I liked E-P1. So G2 went away. About 2 weeks ago I went to Amsterdam for few days and I took X-Z1 with me. It is really good camera with excellent lens. But at least mine had strange flaw - even at low iso, when light was not good, photos became "mushy". So last time in Amsterdam this problem was really evident and I decided that I had it enough. So, I decided to let go X-Z1 also.

But I really wanted smaller camera. I was thinking about Sony Nex-5N and even Nikon D3200. But at last moment I saw very good deal on a second hand E-PL3 and since I still have 12-50 lens I decided to buy it. And I must admit I like this camera better than Panasonic G2. Only thing I noticed that could bother me is lack of viewfinder. In strong sun it is hard to see rear display. Is VF-3 similar to G2 EVF or worse?

I really like good OOC jpg and art filters.

I want to share one photo I took during a weekend while walking a dog:



Sorry EXIF was stripped and I did not notice that frames were turned on in a camera.
