I have my old EP1, an EPL2 I got on a good price a month or so back, but my wife struggles with using both. Too many buttons, and she keeps knocking settings off (one day, she shot 150 pictures at f/16 -- "Why did these all turn out blurry?" then I try to explain and she goes "never mind. I don't want to know all that. I just don't want them to be blurry"), so I decided to get an EPM1 and see if she could use that (almost no buttons!), but having used it, I LOVE this camera, but I also was thinking about the G3 and a nice deal passed under my nose, so I grabbed it. So, now I've got an EP1, EPL2, EPM1 and G3, and a VF2 that works on the EPL2 and EPM1. And I love them all for different reasons: EP1: my first m43 camera. Beautiful, and always rewards patience. Also, at about $100+ net street value, it's the camera I can take anywhere and not get too worried (even into slightly off weather). EPL2. Got it at a good price, and a very competent performer. Once of the best ergo cameras I've used at this size, pop-up flash, and good performance. I've yet to see the "red dots" either. But I'm not enamored with the wheel in back. EPM1. Was just going to see if my wife wanted to use this one, but it is a beautiful camera. First, I got one in white. Second, it's so darn fast. Fast to turn on, fast to focus, and a lot easier to control than I thought it might be. Though it, too, has the wheel in back, it's much easier to use/control. Third, it's small. Really small. It feels about 1/2 the size of the EPL2, though of course not technically that small, but the footprint is really lightweight. Much better WB in jpgs, especially indoors. G3. Built in EVF. I'm going to be testing IQ, but I think it's better than the pens. My Panny lenses are quieter, and it seems to me, render more richly on the G3. The grip isn't that bad (not as good as the EPL2, but better than the EP1 and EPM1). But the buttons and menus aren't my favorite. If this one stays, it will be because of IQ, not controls. G3 has a big, glowing "iA" button that could really help my wife ("honey -- push this button, and only take pictures when the iA is lit") I only want to keep two, and now I have to decide. The combos are: Affordable, but not wife-friendly: EP1 and EPL2 Size-able/grip-able: EPL2 and G3 Two Options: Bigger with EVF (G3) and pocket (EPM1) Great Controls: EPL2 and EPM1 Sadly, the EP1 may have to find a new home. I don't really see a scenario where I keep it . (EP1 + EPL2 doesn't help my wife. EP1 + G3 doesn't give me a great "pocket" option. EP1 + EPM1 leaves me a little short on a good feeling camera in the hands that also has decent performance). Well, I'll try some testing later this week for IQ. I might also post some camera body, side-by-side shots if folks want to see that.
