Great Handling and Great Results
The original thought was to purchase a new DSLR. After reviewing and handling a bunch of them, all were a bit too large for our intended purpose. Even borrowed one to try at an event. Too bulky and heavy. Saw the E-P3 (above our budget) and the E-PL-3 and E-PM1. The PL-3 fit our budget and offered the versatility and "tinkering" capability of a DSLR in a P/S size! Perfect! Got a telephoto lens with it and now have the perfect traveling companion... Awesome picture quality too!

Nice camera
Shape, weight and size lend itself to vacation picture taking. Auto focus is fast. Battery life could be better, but I keep a spare with me so not much of a problem. I really like this camera.

Great camera: Spontaneous and portable
Color rendition of this camera, paired with the right lens such as Zuiko 45mm 1.8, is simply stunning for a camera this size. I prefer it to my DSLR, despite the slightly narrower dynamic range. The best thing about this camera, is the fact that I take more pictures in my spare time. The DSLRs are resting at home, while the E-PL3 gets to go with me on virtually every outing. The result is a higher frequency of spontaneous pictures, and that with an image quality high enough for me to care to print. The menu is deep and allows for great customization. It can be difficult to navigate how ever. I will recommend the E-VF2 if you are used to taking pictures the "old fashioned" way. Even if you are not, it certainly isolates and clarifies your view of the scene colossally. Will get you better shots. Responsiveness is very good. Shots are captured when I want to, not 0.3 seconds later. Start up and ready to shoot from OFF is a little longer than I would have liked it to be. Approximately 3 seconds. Lens choices are good. But there is a need for more Zuiko primes in my opinion. Articulation is very useful and work as intended. High ISO is not as great as I would have expected and does not rival some competitors offerings in this segment. I never shoot high ISO (beyond 500), which is why this does not matter for me. This camera is a joy to use, its pocket-able with the Zuiko 17mm 2.8 and you can even keep a spare lens in a coat pocket, which is what I do. A highly portable all round fantastic camera, that has revitalized spontaneous photography for me.

The e-pl3 is what it said it was, a fine picture taking machine! I love the small size, but large enough to hang onto! I really like the moveable view screen. With some practice, I'm getting more familiar with the menu. My wife is starting to handle the camera and is even pressing the shutter button. Now I can be in some of the pictures! The camera seems to out class the others in that style!
