One last comparison, between the E-3 and the Panasonic DMC-L10, a camera we're fairly sure shares the same new LiveMOS sensor. The differences would appear to be down to processing (which would make sense; this is the same lens and we presume the same sensor). In most respects (color, detail) the E-3 wins, but it's interesting to see that the L10's JPEG engine is actually doing a better job with highlight clipping than the E-3.
