As you know DxOmark tested the Nikon 1 sensors and gave it the same score as the m43 sensors. But look at that simple image comparison posted by massimo on dpreview forum. Time for DxOmark to add the resolution as a parameter in their tests otherwise their score really is misleading!
New Olympus E-PL3 Review at DCresource (Click here): “Overall, the Olympus E-PL3 is a well-appointed, relatively inexpensive interchangeable lens camera that offers a lot of bang for the buck. It produces high quality stills and videos, offers features for both beginners and enthusiasts, and has generally very snappy performance. While there’s some room for improvement, Olympus’ midrange Pen is definitely worth checking out“.
Olympus PEN E-PL3 review at Techradar (Click here): “Compared against the E-P3 it represents very good value for money indeed, although against other competitors from rival manufacturers it still looks to be a bit on the pricey side. It wouldn’t take much of a drop in the street price for that to change though. In the meantime, should you have your heart set on one you are unlikely to be disappointed.”
Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GF3 review by PDNonline (Click here): “Like I said, it’s a pity this camera isn’t more aimed at pros. While I really enjoyed my time shooting with the gorgeous Leica M9-P, I had more fun with the GF3 overall“.
