The minute Olympus PEN E-P3, the best out of its series, is not only a good looker but an outstanding performer with features like a speedy AF system, OLED display and a user-friendly overlay menu. Otherwise, for someone looking into developing photography as a semi-serious hobby, the Olympus PEN E-P3 Single Lens Kit ($1298) at Comex is a worthy consideration as it comes with freebies like a pair of 8GB+16GB SD cards, camera bag and tripod, all of which would suffice as a starter kit of sorts.

The camera not only comes with a fast F1.8 lens, a control ring, manual modes and quick access to AF points; thrown into the mix are a pair of 8GB+16GB SD cards, an XZ-1 case and a screen protector.
