Listed below are some of the rivals of the Olympus E-PL3.
The brand new Olympus E-PL2 is the second PEN camera aimed directly at the compact owner looking to upgrade to a more capable, but still portable and relatively inexpensive, camera. Key improvements over the year-old E-PL1 model include a larger LCD screen, faster auto-focusing, and a new kit lens. Read our expert Olympus E-PL2 review to find out if it hits the mark.
Olympus have further expanded their Micro Four Thirds family with the launch of the E-P3. Boasting the World's fastest autofocus system, the E-P3 also adds a 3-inch OLED touchscreen display, new 12.3 megapixel Live MOS sensor, full HD movie mode with stereo sound, and an extensive range of creative filters.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 is a new Compact System Camera designed to appeal to frustrated compact users looking to upgrade to something better but not necessarily bigger. Combining an innovative touch-screen interface with a simple control layout, tiny body and DSLR-like image quality and features, does the GF3 deliver both the portability of a compact and the professionalism of a DSLR?

The new NX100 is Samsung's answer to the Panasonic GF, Olympus PEN and Sony NEX - a mirrorless, compact system camera with interchangeable lenses and the attraction of a large APS-C sensor. As well as being smaller and lighter than the more DSLR-like NX10 model, the NX100 offers an innovative i-Function button which allows you to change the camera's key settings simply by pressing a button and turning the focus ring of the lens. With a retail price of around £449.99 / $599.99 with the new 20-50mm kit lens, the Samsung NX100 also offers fantastic value for money.

The NEX-C3 is the third compact system camera from Sony, offering a number of refinements over the previous NEX-3 model. With a 16 megapixel APS HD CMOS sensor, 720p HD movies, high-res 3 inch tilting screen and external flash, the NEX-C3 also adds a range of Picture Effects, a refined user interface, and longer battery life.
