A photo blog by an obsessed urban walker from Sydney. Sorry about all the cat photos.

I love my E-p1 and will upgrade to an E-p3. There's arguable trade off in image quality compared to a similarly priced dslr but it's much smaller and looks dang cool. It really comes down to personal preference. I'm getting more into high end little point-and-shoots as I can carry one in my hand all day, and it's silent and sneaky :-) Some folks prefer the solid feel of a dslr - it's all such a personal thing.If you happen to be in Sydney then head up to the JB Hifi in the new Westfield in Pitt Street Mall - they have tons of cameras out on display that you can pick up and play with
ps - the epl2 is a bargain at the moment at around $500 from hongkers - almost as fast but lacks touch screen.
Both the Olympus and Panasonic are great, each have their own strengths.If you are mainly doing regular daytime snapshots then a little point'n'shoot is just as good, in good light it can be hard to pick the difference in image quality. I have a Canon S95 which goes with me everywhere, fits in my shirt or jeans pocket, it's brilliant. Now I mainly use the bigger EP-1 camera for food blogging photos, low light shots and shots where I want to blur the background.
I've been drooling over the x100 as well....
