    I am buying the Pen E-P3, with the 17mm lens for starters. Then the VF-? electronic viewfinder. Next a zoom lens. I was 2 days away from getting the E-P2 when Oly announced the P3. I can’t wait ’til it is available at B&H Photo; I’ll be there as soon as it hits the shelves. Only decision – black or silver. I’ve been anxious to buy one since I tried the P1 at the US Open tennis match where Oly had a tent with the Pen retro cameras & a very knowledgeable staff. I almost bought it on the spot. Actually, I’ve wanted an Oly Pen since around 1962 – patience is a virtue.
