Re: Impulse buy


Yes the effective part of the screen is a little smaller, and the colours seem less realistic than the old screens, maybe something can be done to adjust it, but mine has a distinctly greenish hue.

Several test reports mention the unrealistic colours of the OLED screen, so I think for reviewing it is not as good as the old type.

For me the main advantage of the E-P3 is that it the image processing is much better, as good as on the E5. The fast focus can be useful, depending on whether you shoot many moving things.

The delay with a blank screen after each shot is a problem for me, I may send it to Olympus for a service and see if that improves things.

Touch screen focus/shooting is there on the E-P3 but the only use I can see for it is macro work on a tripod.
