Though from a straight quality point of view the results from Nikon DSLRs is pretty good. The E-M1 is a far superior camera to this low end Nikon body in every single way apart from image quality.

Of course the EM-1 has far better build, weather sealing etc.

It would be interesting though as an experiment to compare the AF-C and action shooting performance. I believe the D3300 has the AF from Nikon D200 coupled with the faster processor. Will the new on-sensor PDAF of the EM-1 beat the traditional basic PDAF of the little 5 fps Nikon coupled to a fast focusing AF-S lens? Anybodys guess, I guess...
