E-P3 be considered an upgrade for a E-PM2 user?

Hello everybody,

I was waiting for a real E-P5 price drop, but still don't see one coming anytime soon.

E-P5 was already $799 before this recent Olympus promo (buy a body get $200 off a lens), but Olympus bumped the price back up to $999. Few days ago, they dropped it back to $799 making it appear like there was a price drop when there really wasn't..

Anyways, I started looking at the E-P3. From what I've seen and read, there are a few obvious key differences, 1/8000, 5 axis, 16mp, etc.. but some said that it would be hard for a E-P3 user to justify upgrading to the E-P5.

So.. if I'm a E-PM2 user, who has not been happy with the color noise and colors (I seem to get more of a magenta/yellowish tone, compared to my previous E-PL2), would a E-P3 be considered an upgrade?!

The E-P3 is more customizable and has better handling.

Please provide me with input, thank you!
