    I have had the E-P3 for several days now and I have been playing around with the files that this belter of a camera puts out.

    One thing that really amazes me is the quality of the images and the detail these little lens resolve.

    If I am totally honest I thought I would be seeing a difference in image quality from my old D300 and D700 but I think the images are just as clean under the right conditions.

    Now I know I will not get the high ISO performance of the D700 out of the files however I think the reduced size of the system and the fact that I now have crumpler shoulder bag, that carries, my X100, The E-P3 and four lenses, when the same bag used to struggle to carry the D700 with a short zoom and a flash.

    Here are several more images from recent wander.

    Shoot in RAW, then edit in LR, your notice the difference. Enjoy, that's what it's all about.

    Thanks for the comments, I am sure sooner or later I will see what the raw file perform like but for now I am happy with the jpgs. For the time being I will stick with the shorter work flow until I can operate the camera with out thinking.
