Re: D3300 competes with the $349 E-PM2 (Nikon is $150 more!)

The Nikon is a pretty stripped down budget camera. It competes with the less expensive PEN series. The only problem for the Nikon is it is not very small comapred to the PEN cameras.

As for the E-M1 with the weather sealing and faster performance, it competes more with the D7100...which is very large.

it's larger not very large, you can hold it comfortably with a 50mm/1.8 in one hand, it's smaller than a D800 and larger than the smallest mFT, it sits in the middle ground of for size of cameras
