Re: Did they? did you check the g3 samples vs EP3?

Agreed. I'm not blown away with any of the new Oly bodies. And although Olympus' menus look prettier and now have helpful explanatory text, they remain unnecessarily convoluted and are still an unmitigated mess IMO. YMMV.

And what's up with the mediocre studio scene JPG samples? I thought Oly's OOC JPGs were one of the best in the business. I guess we'll have to wait until we can see some ACR converted RAW samples to really see what's going on there.

I do admit that the new Oly lenses look pretty sweet, however.

Total let down as far as I'm concerned. I wanted a better sensor and built in EVF. They have what, 6 bodies now and other then a mild tweak they are all about the same. Please give us some variety, not everyone wants some retro thing that's almost the same as the last one.

Oh well, at least I'm not tempted to buy one and can use the money for something else.
