a pretty well spec'd camera and gives access to a huge system.

On a budget it would be hard to pick an EM1 over these cheap entry level DSLRs.


The D3300 competes with the Olympus E-PM2. The E-PM2 beats it in a lot of categories that matter to the users buying this class of camera(Weight, Size, AF, IQ, and Burst speed). I just picked up an E-PM2 with 14-42 + 40-150mm lenses for $349 shipped.

How does the Nikon expect to compete with that?
