Hi John,

I have first hand experience on the E-P1 only, I'll look into the E-P3 for the high iso thing.

One reason I like m43 is that - considering that I hate changing lenses on the field since I droppep my Nikkor 85 1.8 on the asphalt - I could get more than one body, even one for each lens and carry the multiple combo as needed. The bag wouldn't be that heavy... or that expensive with the current oly pen/pana body prices

Hi Marcello,

If it helps, I regularly use the E-P3 up to iso 1250 with all noise reduction off in jpeg with virtually no noise and very sharp, colourful images.
Good luck with your choice.

Hi Marcello,

I have looked at old images made with my D300 and 85mm f1.8, and compared to my E-P3 with 45mm f1.8, and the Olympus images look better to my eyes.

Kind regards,
