What could I expect from an E-3 (over an E-520)?

Re: What could I expect from an E-3 (over an E-520)?

I would say not to expect a MAJOR difference. The benefit of 1/3 ev steps in ISO increments is very helpful. The dynamic range and sharpness are slightly better. ISO will go up to 3200 from 1600. The difference is not too major (I've owned E-520, E-3, 30, 5). With that said: for the price, the E-3 is an excellent weather sealed body for the price it is now on the used/refurbished market.
