I’m considering buying this camera and after seeing the above photos I think I could be making the right decision. Any idea when the full review will be online?

What a duff set of pictures, don’t you guy’s ever use a tripod, there was camera shake on several that I looked at. Thus making them useless for evaluation.
And what settings were used ? Extreme noise setting for sure.

I use an E-PL1 (amongst others) daily for stock photography, and as such I am desperately dissapointed by the examples shown here. If they are a true reflection of this cameras capabillity, I wont be buying one. I cant help thinking that this review is doing Olympus a diservice!

These pics are very similar to the following ones of the PL3 posted in a german forum
It looks like the pen has a problem with the OIS under certain circumstances (shutter shorter than 1/160s=!?).

I also have an E-PL1 with first generation lens and it produces better images than these examples. I cannot imagine the Olympus E-PM1 would be worse - in my wildest nightmare.
Here is an initial first impression/review worth reading: http://visualsciencelab.blogspot.com/2011/09/second-day-of-shooting-with-ep3.html

I agree with some of the Posters I don’t think these images are representative of the new Pen’s capabilities.  Please try again.  Thanks.
