Experienced photographers often lament that beginners worry too much about the camera body and too little about the lens. With that bit of wisdom in mind, it would seem that one looking to enter the m43 world ought to resist the glory poured out on the Ep3 and instead snatch up an Ep2 or an Epl2, or even an epl1, at 1/2 or less the cost of the Ep3, then maybe buy a lens or two off craigslist or ebay. But the reviews make the Ep3 sound like a real game changer and suggest that this might be the exception that proves the rule. So, if it were your money... Ep2, Epl2, and an extra lens or two, or the Ep2. (And, does anyone know anything about the epl3?) I'm looking to do more urban landscape and abstract stuff, some casual portraits, but nothing action or "stealthy."
