I've been looking closely at this progress being made by both Panasonic and Olympus. Seems they are really moving this technology down the road a ways. So I'm selling some other gear and making room for a possible return to the mft format. The G3 was getting all of my attention until of course they announced the release in August of the E-P3 which would be right up my alley. Except I have to admit, while there's no doubt the VF-2 is the highest quality EVF out there, plugging it in all the time was a pain back when I had a E-PL1. The price puts me off a bit too as I'd rather spend the $200 difference on lenses instead of a viewfinder, which comes stock built in on a G3. I can't say they are miles apart in IQ either, pretty darned close. I had a bad experience trying a GH-2 back in December sending it back and throwing the towel in on mft at that point. I don't care for ISO noise below around ISO800 at least, and it had it at base ISO. I saw some samples on line from a tester that indicated noise in the sky even at ISO200 on the P3 which scares me a bit. I won't put up with that as I had a NIkon D300 that did that and won't go back there. So I'll patiently await the sale of some other gear to complete and see what I'll end up doing. I'm not the most patient person in the world so that won't bode well for the P3 either as I doubt they will be available prior to at least mid August. We''ll all have to be patient and see how the testing and final firmware unfold for these new models.
