    An interesting comparison between Sony and Olympus appeared online the week before Christmas and I just encountered it today. It's a review of what some folks may call old technology -- the Sony NEX-3 and Oly E-PL1. And it offers some intriguing conclusinons, which the author presents at the start of the review instead of the end :)rolleyes:).

    I found the review additionally fascinating because it appears on a site that is totally unrelated to photography in any way shape or form. What's it doing there? Go figure! :confused:

    No, I'm not trolling here, although it almost feels that way. I just about decided not to mention it, but thought others might find it interesting too. Not saying I buy into all his conclusions, but it was a fun read. Anyway, see what you think. The review is at Peter Free's web site here...

    When I used the NEX3, the metering was never right. He has an opposite conclusion.

    Interesting review -- purposely reviewing "older" technology for the frugally minded.
