      Your camera won’t stop working just because a new model comes out.

        Cameras will soon be firmware programmed to self destruct at the announcement of its new model. After the warranty period, too. Your Wi-Fi enabled camera will silently download and install a “bricking” code. Leaving you with a paperweight and no option but to buy a new camera. Sure… they’ll fix it for you… for a cost… of a new camera!

      • No shit, whoda known?

        However, unlike with a film camera, you can’t upgrade (technical) image of digital (= soon-to-be obsolete camera) quality by “installing” a current emulsion. I have a Coolpix from ’99 that works just fine. You wanna buy it?

        • Uh, that should have said “(technical) image quality.”

          Admin, not trying to pressure you, but how’s the EDIT function coming along?

          • admin

            It gets in conflict with the new wordpress system. We willt ry tof ind a solution. We wanted to install Disquis but many didn’t liek the idea. So we have to find a solution for ourselfs… :(

    admin, I like the ‘controlled white space’ between the caption and body text…

    • GrauUhu

      Ah! As if by magic the space is no more.

    Shouldn’t this camera be in the $350 price range by now? The new PEN with SONY sensor blew it away for hundreds cheaper.

    • Anonymous

      It really should. Especially considering that two weeks ago, with a quick bit of reselling unneeded accessores, you could get the E-PL5 with 14-42 for about $475 net.

    I would be happy if the price would be that low in Germany-i m still thinking about buying one of these-when its cheap enought. I dont need the extra punch in Picture quality, but would be happy with the faster AF, and better handling then my E-PL2…

    I wanted the E-P3 since the day it showed up, and just waiting untill the price reaches my limit-so i like the pricedrop, nobody is forced to buy early ;-)

  • alexander

    where is e-p4 ???

  • MdB

    I like my E-P3 and wouldn’t take an E-PL5 over it. People are so caught up in specs, the E-P3 is a far better handling camera – in fact I prefer it to the OMD in many regards. Please Olympus don’t put your enormous flippy screen in the E-P3 replacement! New sensor and maybe, just maybe I you are feeling super generous a built in EVF and 5-Axis IS. But if you are being lazy, just do a 16MP E-P3 and call it a day.

    Oh, if you could go a Sony Whitemagic 3″ 4:3 (!) aspect ratio display that would be swell too.

    Yours sincerely, the guy who thinks your E-P3 is still the best camera you sell despite it being the oldest and only model to have the relatively unloved Panasonic 12MP sensor.
