Ok, a disclaimer first. I really do think the smaller :43: cameras are the better. But... One thing that disappointed me about E-PL3 is the absence of any kind of grip. In fact, if I were to choose a camera right now I would probably not even consider E-PL3 and E-PM1 for this very reason. I know many people use neck straps with :43: but for me it's not a preferable way, mainly because I prefer to have several lenses in a bag and, since a bag has a neck strap already, why would I need another one? A hand strap could be useful but when taking a camera out of bag I would rather hold it by a grip than anything else. So, my E-P1 does not have any straps attached at all. Am I the only one who thinks Olympus went too far with this miniaturization attempt? What's more, I really think this difference is more perceived than real, since the depth of E-PL3 is still the same as E-P3 (the lens mount protrudes from E-PL3) so E-PL3 + pancake combo is really about as pocketable (or not) as E-P3 + the same pancake. What do you think?
