In the kickoff of season 3, Kai and Lok from DigitalRevTV compare an entry level DSLR – the Nikon D3100 – with a mirrorless camera – the E-P3 to see if there is still a point of having a DSLR.
It looks like the small Olympus PEN E-P3 holds up pretty well against the Nikon, even surpassing it in some categories, and with recent advances in sensor technology, we’d bet that new Olympus cameras, like the new PEN Lite (E-PL5) and PEN Mini (E-PM2), that are equipped with the same sensor as the flagship OM-D E-M5 would do even better.
Two other cameras that we can highly recommend:
1. The Panasonic GX1 with a 14-42 power zoom lens, which you can now get a GREAT DEAL on with the expected launch of the GX2.
2. The new SONY NEX 5R, with it’s powerful SONY sensor and wi-fi capability
