Introduction

The Olympus E-P3 is the latest flagship Micro Four Thirds camera from Olympus and brings a number of new features to the table: a touch-enabled 610k-dot resolution OLED screen, an interchangeable grip, a lightning-quick contrast autofocus system, a new built-in flash, and the same retro styling we've come to know and love from Olympus E-P cameras. It still uses a slightly outdated 12-megapixel Live MOS image sensor, though, which leaves questions about its performance compared to the rest of the 2011 compact system market.
