I know there are pro's and con's on both of these cameras, but I really would like an EVF or tilting screen or both. The EMP-2 has neither and I tend to take a lot of photos in bright sunlight.

When a camera does not have the features or options you want or need then don't buy it, it weill freustrate you in the end. But there are other mirrorless cameras out there from Olympus (and panansonic) with the options you want like the Pen EPL-5

When you realy want an EVF it can be a good thing to look at a camera with build in VF like the Nex 6 or the OM-D.

Does the Olympus have far superior picture quality to the F3???

All modern large sensor mirrorless cameras have very good immage quality, differences in real life picrtures are mostly not noticable when you look at them as a total in print or on your screen. The photographer brings more to the IQ then the camera does.

What will be most important is the way the camera feels in your hands. Go to a shop and try the cameras of your choice and go for the one you find handling best, that is more important then all the other stuff (unless you realy need a special lens that is ony available for one of the cameras of your choice.

Thanks
