    I've returned my E-pl3 because of issues with hot pixels/white dots appearing randomly, which the service center seems to have no way of fixing. I've also seen similar examples on E-p3 and e-pl2 images so they are not an option for me.

    I'm not too bothered by the lack of mode dial or mono mic on the GF3, not having a hotshoe isn't a problem since I don't plan on using an evf with the camera either, so this is more of an IQ comparison question. The only direct image comparisons i've been able to find are on the dpreview studio tests, so I guess I'm looking for more real world comparisons in the field and any kind of user input from current users of the gf3 or those who have switched recently.
