The EP-3 is now in my hands; send in your specific review requests

First off, FAST really means FAST. Using the MSC lens takes it to my E5 focusing speeds aka 14-54ii.

Those thinking of the 20mm f1.7 will be a tad disappointed that its not FAST FAST, though faster than on EPL2.

Secondly, a beauty of a camera. Processing speed close to E5 with many options to play with. The 35 af is great though I would prefer a 5 cross af option vs the 9 af box option.

The touch focus is great esp since the camera is same weight as ep2 meaning steadier than gf2 and really quick.

Batter and charger are of old variety inbox - blm1 and Blc1. A bummer here.

The oled seems to give overly saturated colours though his has ti be checked later.
Anyways to my point.
What I have on hand.

VF2 viewfinder
M43 lens

I have a week till my holiday in Singapore and I plan on teasing the camera extensively though I have limited time. So send me your requests and I will endeavor to try them out over the course of the week.
