What I like about this camera are the controls and how the camera feels rock solid. I had the E-PL1 for more than 2 years. I did like the image quality. Had no problems with high ISO's because I never had the need to go above ISO 800. Especcialy some nice fast glass helps with that. Lenses like the 12mm f/2.0 and 45mm f/1.8 helps to keep the ISO low. What I disliked about my E-PL1 from the beginning was the lack of control-wheel and the feel of the camera. I was looking for an upgrade some ...

I used to use a PEN-FT, a wonderful film camera. Compact, reasonable optics, and pretty good during its time for backpacking, technical climbing, and kayaking. So I was pre-disposed to love the E-P3. The comments which follow reflect my disappointments, and a few delights. 1. The add-on viewfinder (VF-2) is a terrible compromise. It is much larger than it would be if built-in. On an enthusiast camera, it should be built in. I can't imagine anyone using an LCD to compose anything except ...

I'm a very happy owner of the olympus e-p3. Before I had the e-pl1. It's a joy to use this camera. Picture quality isl awesome. My Nikon D300 get's more and more dusty.

I’ve been shooting with an EP3 for 3 weeks, and I’m delighted with the results. I moved from an EOS 7D / “L” lenses to a combination of EP3 + good quality primes, and so far I have no reason to regret the move (I shoot travel and family, portraits, pure amateur stuff). While everyone would bemoan the “old” sensor and “low” high-ISO IQ, this does not bother me because : a) I do not print beyond 20/30 cm nor use screen sizes beyond my 27’’ iMac. Under these requirements, resolution is largely ...

I bought this camera after backpacking around the world with an "expendable" Nikon D40 digital SLR which I bought for just $420 - less than half the price of my new Olympus E-P3. Prior to that I shot film on SLRs. The Nikon took photos that were probably just as good as those from the E-P3. Why, then, did I buy the E-P3? Because of the weight. Anybody who has spent all day, every day, lugging an SLR around with them will know what I mean. Size and weight are the two advantages that mirrorless ...

I have had the E-P3 for a couple of weeks now - it's been to a wedding, done some street photography and so on with no problems. The real point about this camera is the great feel and finish of the product - it's very tactile and feels very well made. This inspires you to carry it about and to take pictures with it. Combine this with the small size of the lenses and it's a winner! I am not going to mention 'IQ' or 'ISO Performance' because they are simply good enough for any practical ...
