Definately not past it!

I recently purchased an E-P3 body, mainly because I read some very interesting reviews and feedback from users. I did not really need another body but could not resist a 'like new' example at a very good price. I am very impressed and surprised how good the results are. Even more importantly it is a delight to hold and use. I know and understand the benefits of more modern technology and larger sensors but, for my needs this is a super little camera. Just my opinion that older bodies are definately not past it.

I actually prefer the PEN for going out with and the E-M1 for studio type work

We often repeat the mistakes we most enjoy...

And the e-P3 is the first of the proper "P" line to have a popup flash.

Re: Definately not past it!

I'm looking into buying one used to replace my E-PM1 which is fine but lacks buttons and dials that the E-P3 has.
