First off, apologies if this or a similar question has already been asked. I have done a few searches but I am in a bit of a hurry for some info and opinions. In choosing between the E-pl2 and E-pl3, there isn't much in it. I initially thought the lack of hand grip on the newer model would be a dealbreaker, especially for someone with large hands like myself but after testing both at the showroom, I found that the newer model actually feels quite good to hold. The only real advantage I can see from the reviews is the focusing lamp. I don't care much about the faster af, more focusing points and more art filters, I just like the look and feel of the E-p3 a little better. The only thing is that the 16:9 three inch lcd means I will have to crop images to 4:3 effectively making the image into a smaller 2.4'' (according to DCResource) with black bars on the sides. I spoke to someone earlier today who said it's something the user will get used to but I don't know if that's true. The articulated screen seems like a good idea but I don't know if having extra angles is such an advantage if the image used for composing shots is smaller. I just don't know why they fitted a screen suited more for video's for a product meant for shooting stills. Anyway, any info or opinions would be appreciated. Edit: I do not plan on purchasing or using the EVF's available for the cameras so the LCD will be my only means for composing shots.
