    I hadn't seen this but a pal told me about the article today, forecasting that I'd soon be buying another camera. Imagine that!?

    He's quite enthusiastic about both The Olympus PEN E-P3 and the SONY NEX-C3, but I'd say he loves the NEX-C3

    My C3 arrives on Thursday, if he thinks it looks odd with the kit lens...wonder what he'd think seeing my Nikkor 55 1.2 lashed up :biggrin:

    Did you read the article? The second to last paragraph is key.:wink:

    Can't wait to hear and see your reactions, Bruce!!

    There is a lot of discussions about this article in dpreview, but I watched Kai's view of "Sony NEX C3 vs Oly E-P3 vs Panny GF3 - Manual Focus Face-Off!"

    It is much more fun to watch him:)

    He certainly loves the NEX.

    It's funny because in the past, an article like this would have sent me into a frenzy of gear lust, and I'd scour the internet for reviews, images, and user experiences. I'd stare endlessly at photos of the cameras and imagine them at night (I know, that sounds terrible!).

    But now, oddly, I feel nothing like that. I think about the gear that I have and I realize that I've GOT just about everything I want already. Except for the new Ricoh M-module.

    I kind of miss the rabid lust for gear! How weird!

    Manual focus

    A while ago I'd have been more interested in the test, but frankly not too anxious to use legacy glass on my EP3 - much, much rather get a 12mm f2.:rolleyes: - and use the snap focus on that if and when required.
