    Here u go again ...lol
    I haven't used G3 as such but I had EPL3 for a while . I didn't like the handling of the camera at all. It didn't offer me any thing better than my EPL2 apart from tilt screen . I have big thumb and screen on the right edge almost overlaps the control wheel. The camera feels a bit odd without grip .If there is no problem with DLSR style body then G3 would be my choice , otherwise I will prefer my EPL2 over EPL3 anyway unless Olympus changes EPL4 drastically .
    Cheers

    The G3 has a nice grip and built in EVF, but no IBIS.. I like the OLY for IBIS but not sure if it's that Big of a deal..

    I don't think there should be any problems.I had G2 and used panny 20 mm on it with it OIS .I like Oly WB and colours better than Panny but in this case I would go for G3

    The E-PL3 has noticably clearer, more detailed video than your E-PL2.
