Testing the New Olympus E-P3 – Part 2

Here are some more photos from my recent testing of the new Olympus PEN E-P3, their latest Micro Four Thirds camera. All photos were taken using their new Zuiko 12mm f/2 lens and they are all the JPEG files straight out of the camera. No post-processing done. If you missed the part 1, read it here.

And some more photos shot under low light condition.

One thing I noticed yesterday was the new LCD screen worked very well on a bright sunny day. Almost no or just a little glare. It’s very usable and very helpful for a camera without a viewfinder when used outdoor. Well done Olympus. My old Panasonic GF1 couldn’t do this. For a camera without a viewfinder, this is definitely a great news. I will be testing it more on Tuesday hopefully. Stay tuned.

    Thanks for an interesting read. What do you think of the kit lens, 14-42 mm? Is it sharp and fast? Good enough for street photography?

      Hi KG … yes, I believe so. I called a shop yesterday and was told that it’s available. I need to see it myself though. 🙂ReplyCancel

      Hi Marvin, I was at Cathay Photo on Monday and they already had E-P3 there. They told me the price was ~1200 with kit lens.ReplyCancel
