Although only a single letter has been added to the previous model the changes made are quite significant. This ranges from the physical, in a smaller shell, to the electronic in a brand new 16MP sensor.

The range that arguably popularised the CSC, Olympus' PEN series latest offering adheres to that which has come before it, by being attractive and well featured. The E-P3 now sports a rapid AF system, built-in flash and improved movie mode to make it a perfect example of the benefits of the compact system camera over a DSLR.
Although removing the buttons that make the likes of manual controls may seem like a misstep, Panasonic's GF3 remedies this by adding a superb touchscreen which allows for the likes of touch focussing. With a smartly designed body, rapid autofocus response and 12MP sensor this CSC model impresses on many levels.
