Re: I wish I could agree....

Well, Jeff over at DCResource says that the E-P3's OLED screen is hard to see outside:

"Downsides include mild noise reduction artifacts at the base ISO, hit-or-miss focusing in low light, a lack of "real" image stabilization in movie mode, and the fact that the otherwise great OLED display is hard to see outdoors."

I wonder who's right?

The new AF doesn't seem to have lived up to the pre-release hype.

DPR: "And it's not just the impressive AF speed that makes the E-P3 feel much more responsive than previous PENs - the dual core processor means image processing and live view can be run in parallel, decreasing the blackout time after each shot. This, combined with a responsive shutter mechanism gives an impression of immediacy every time you hit the shutter button."

The new LCD (OLED) isn't very good in sunlight

DPR: "A special mention has to be given to the new OLED screen, which at 614,000 dots is leaps and bounds beyond any previous PEN. It's bright, sharp and colourful with anti-reflective ... But most importantly, from our initial experience it's entirely usable in bright light, even with strong summer sun shining directly on to it."

I'd rather trust DPReview than someone who (I assume) has not even handled the camera.
