Olympus Pen EP3 - good purchase?

I have a big birthday coming up and am tempted to get a second Olympus Pen body (EP3) so I can go out with two primes mounted (i.e., one on my existing EP1 and another on the new body) I would also like to get the most recent features. I would be doing a bit of part ex and topping up. I find my Nikon D300 mainly takes pictures at home and close to car parks, these days. Any comments on the desirability of the EP? And how does it stack up against the Panasonic G series?

Thanks. Sue

The EP3 is quite a big step up from the EP1, although it still uses a 12mp sensor.

If you get on with the EP1 I`m sure you will get on with the EP3, with its touch screen, built in flash, and better focusing.

The inbody IS and wireless flash support is the deciding factor, if these are not important the Panasonic`s are just as good.
