Re: Have Olympus E-PM1, Considering Sony NEX-C3

I have a NEX-3 and a NEX-5R. Also an E-PL1 and a GF2 (anybody looking for a GF2?)

I suggest that you investigate a reconditioned warrantied E-PL2 but if you really need a 16 sensor....

- The C3 is now too old imho. as the newer models are faster focusing. The 3F has been a bit of a dud...some failures plus ugly and sub-par on features and performance. Try to find one of the remaining NEX-5n's as they are obsoleted now but real fine and seriously discounted. C3's though  very pretty are so rare that you may find a 5n easier/cheaper.

-Of course more lens selection with m43... but a 16mp sensor from NEX is not the same thing as a 16 mp sensor from Olympus. Because the NEX sensor is double the area, each pixel is twice as large which translate to much less noise at higher ISO's.
