    I enjoyed the review, even though I am not in the market for a m4/3rd. It was a pleasure to read and see.

    Great review, and it really looks like you found the right camera for you - that's what it's all about. Love the "They begin with the city" shot BTW, excellent capture!

    I'm sure that you will "own" the E-PL3 as much as you did the E-PL1 (although you haven't convinced me to make the same move myself just yet :wink:)

    Thanks for the interesting real-world review. I'm sure we'll see many more excellent shots from it.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Great piece Alf. You know, in the recent podcast I talk about the EPL3 and it's flip-up screen a fair amount, but I forgot to make the comparison to how much it reminds me of shooting in the old days with a Twin Lens Reflex. Thank you for mentioning that in the review - it really is a make or break feature to me and it seems many who try it really come to love it. I always felt really comfortable shooting with the camera down near my waist or belly and now even more so with the EPL3.

    I really enjoyed the review and your photos, as always.

    Alf, I also really enjoyed reading your review. You have a wonderful writing style which always makes me want to read on...I think much of it is your wit, as well as the way you paint pictures with your words. What can I tell you - between your review and photos and Ray's podcast, I'm finding it very difficult to not wish I had that flip up screen! I'm also blown away by that new lens of yours, I think it's the 48mm? You made a great decision moving forward with this combination and I know you'll be happy with what you have for many years. Looking forward to having more time to enjoy your photos!:drinks:
