I currently use an E-PL3 and Olympus 17mm f2.8. The lack of view finder does annoy me, but I have ordered the VF-2 which is almost the same ad the EVF in the OM-D to compensate. All together this kit has cost a lot less and is great for travelling.

I cannot recommend the 17mm f2.8 highly enough, it is fast enough and on the small E-PL3 body it fits nicely into my pocket.

I picked up a GH-3 the other day and was very surprised how big it is, I was considering this against the OM-D when I upgrade, but because of the sheer size of it I was out off.

The Olympus 12-50mm kit lens with the OM-D is also amazing, not the fastest lens by any means but in terms of versatility for macro and landscapes it is great.
