Summary: I love this Camera. it takes a beating. I recently took a month long tour of Egypt, Jordan and Israel and three cameras rattling around in my awesome canvas camera bag. The dial came off, but superglue put it back on. Of the three cameras I took, this one took the bulk of my pictures.
Summary: The item description was clear. The camera body is (Black), however after the order was placed, the camera turned silver. I all actuality, it was listed as a silver body in the finer print of the description and I missed it. Still seems a little devious.
Summary: Read the reviews. Don't think that "this won't happen to me". This is a defective camera body that the manufacture is trying to dump. The mode dial is defective. Doesn't matter how many accessories that they try to throw in, if the camera body is defective the camera is useless.
Summary: I am an amateur photographer and have owned a few DSLR's. I own the EPL1 and EPL2 and I am very familiar with Olympus logic which works for me. Olympus makes some of the most customizable cameras in the industry. If you don't like reading manuals or learning them, it will frustrate you!
Summary: -------------- Bottom-line -------------- 50% killer photographic machine, 50% severe drawbacks -it all comes down to the price -------------- Details -------------- The E-P3 both kept and improved over the limitations of the E-P1 and E-P2.
Summary: A handsome camera with a vintage vibe, the E-P3 harkens back to the Pen half-frame cameras of yesteryear. Pens are about portability and, fitted with a pancake lens, easily slips into a coat pocket or purse. Albeit wee, it's sturdy and feels like it was machined from a block of aluminum.
Summary: The build, the size, the availability of lenses, the price.. we've heard enough to evaluate this lovely E-P3. All I want to say here is: The built-in Art Filters allows this camera produce miracles with ultra-cheap (both in build and price:) lenses, such as the Olympus BCL 15mm f/8 and Holga 25mm...
Summary: Another Amazon reviewer, I believe, said that they would not have chosen this camera with their rational brain. I'd have to agree: it's not the smallest or lightest micro four thirds camera, nor does it have the latest and greatest sensor.
