    I saw this little test done by Phoblographer with the EP3 v. Canon 7D. Not sure if it's comparing apples and oranges, but it's pretty interesting.

    Here's a couple more videos from the Phoblographer regarding the EP3.

    A Finnish blogger added a speed test E-P2 v E-P3 v Nikon D3x with several lenses. The procedure is not scientific, but very practical: 75 sequential shots, timed and averaged, while continually alternating between two focus targets. Very impressive results! (And consistent with Oly claims...)
