Great news! the Olympus E-P3 (black version) is in-stock at Amazon.com now. You can order the camera for only US$899 and be quick, there’s only 4 items left in stock. There’s also a white version but the price is ridiculously high so be careful.
DxOMark just finished their testing and review on Olympus E-P3 to measure its sensor performances. Interesting results ! The E-P3′s score is somewhat lower than its predecessor , E-P2 and E-P1. E-P3′s overall score is 51 while E-P2 and E-P1 are 56 and 55 respectively. According to DxOMark , they believe that E-P3 use the same sensor as its predecessor.
Several interesting comparisons to check for
