Re:DPR hearts test- Sony Nex-3 vs. Olympus E-PL1

I was thinking to buy a NEX-3. Assets to me are the tilting screen, directable flash, high ISO, compact size and price. Cons are the lack of detail that I thought was caused by the NR, but is still there in RAW as you can see in the samples at ISO 400 (especially compared to the Olympus PEN E-PL1, which is even slightly cheeper and offers more options with lenses) and the tendency to overexpose.

Hi Zinda, you will find it depends on where you look when comparing 'sharpness'.

If you look at dpreviews comparison many have mentioned that some of the sony tests seem to be slightly back focussed and so the queen of hearts looks better than other cameras.

Buy 'selectively' picking you can tell many different stories - so the best method is to try both cameras out!
