The market for used E-P3 bodies took a real dive in recent weeks, lots of people selling theirs to fund the new OM-D. So finally I could afford one to supplement my "aging" E-P1. Two reasons fort this: 1. AF 2. AF. If its faster than a snail, you cant focus on it. I can live with that most of the time. Worse, more often than not ist impossible to focus at all. The too large AF-area then chooses what it wants. This pic, I had to focus manually, because the AF choose the background. I havent looked back to focusing manually ever since the Yashica T4 replaced the Rollei 35, so why start now! And I really really like AF, it makes life so mucheasier. Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) One thing I will have to get used too ist the small font of the menue, but at lesst its not on a 16:9 display as with the E-PM1 I tried earleir this year. And the impossibillity of shutting-off in-camera noise reduction will have to be adressed somehow, too. Ofcourse, the E-P1 with the 17/2.8 will remain, after all it gives so nice results in such a small package and feels good in the hand. Its still a good package! My question: is there someone out there who has made the same transition and give me some hints on how to fine-tune the E-P3? With the E-P1 I was on O for contrast, saturation and sharpness, with picture mode normal. (The E-420 is on contrast -1, saturation +1, sharpness 0) But I guess the E-P3 will be completely different to set up? And now to something totally different: I really like this forum. Its friendly here and not so horribly dogmatic/agressive like so many other ones!
