Im looking to buy a new PEN Olympus
But at times im still undecided .
I want the EP3 but and not sure if i should just settle for the EPL3 .
EP3 is faster, and a few more features , but bascially the same as the EPL3 which is cheaper and has the flip ot screen .
I ahve no idea if the screen will be of use to me as i have never used a flip out screen and have been fine all these years without one . i still feel i shud go for the EP3 . can anyone make any suggestions on the EP3 and EPL3 ..
AT present i have a canon G9 ... and found recently on a trip to washington that i was unable to focus on the subject in the foreground , rather the background ,white house always came into focus . .
the ability to decide on the focus point via the touch screen so might be really helpful ,im thinking .i suppose that is how that feature works .... im not sure .is it ?
i also suppose that these cameras will do better than my G9 , in speed, or action , hence less blurr and fare better in low light . am i right ?
Im only disapointed in not getting much zoom with these olympus cameras . canon g9 was a 6 x zoom .. so all the videos and shots i took at sea world came out well as i was able to zoom into the animals . .. with these PEN cameras i wont be able to do that unless i buy a second lens. the kit is a 14-42 mmm.
the 40-150 luks really out of place and ugly on the camera ... and i dont think it will give me the 6x zoom . im reading up on focal length so as to understand
I hear that within a month OLy will announce new models for these camera , im hesitant to go to the stores to get something now . so i have decided to wait out a bit and see if there will be a better model or atleast a price drop in the cameras im looking at ,
since i had the time i was wondering if someone cud answer my questions for me .
