Really love this camera
I bought this camera as a lightweight travel alternative to my EOS system...I wanted a system camera for which I could buy high quality lenses...definitely not a fixed lens camera. But image quality had to be great. So, a norma typical point and shoot of any type would not do. I have been very happy with the camera mainly because 1) the image quality is good enough (I have a full frame DSLR to compare it to) 2) autofocus is great 3) touch screen is great, particularly the touch screen shutter release. Contrary to some opinions I have had to trouble with false shots due to the touch screen. I have in fact had many false shutter releases with the shutter button (my hands are somewhat large). 4) OLED display to awesome...bright and high quality. 5) Great retro look.

Excellent all round camera
I have been using my Olympus EP3 for about five months now. I am most impressed by the excellent optics of the Zuiko lenses. The kit 14 to 42 will do 80% of what every photographer wants or needs. For travel and street shooting I have stopped using my other lenses because I am so impressed with the quality of the kit zoom. The digital zoom feature makes the kit 35mm equivalent of 28 to 168 mm that's an incredible value. For serious work I always shoot raw and appreciate all the tools available in viewer. It takes a bit of getting used to but is well worth the effort. Once finished with raw processing I will often export to another cataloging program. I recently added the 1.8/45 mm lens. It's incredible. The clarity and bokeh as well as lowlight functionality are excellent. I'm planning on adding the 12 and 75. I also shot HD movies which I have shared online. They are incredible. I would suggest getting two batteries. I always have two batteries for every camera I own. It's so much fun shooting and easy to get carried away and come back with hundreds of photos

It is light and very well made.
I have a EPL-1 and been waiting to be able to get E3 with more controls at easy access. Plus the focusing is much faster. Was thinking about the Epl-3, but I really wanted E-P3.

The touch autofocus is dead-on.
Excellent lightweight camera for travel, hiking and biking adventures. The touch autofocus screen is amazing. Camera produces excellent colors. Menus are a bit perplexing and the manual could be better written. But after unlocking the super control menu I'm good to go. Fits in my hands perfectly. The only drawback is the lack of an articulating screen. Terrific little camera!
