Mirrorless Shootout: EP3 vs NEX5 vs GF3 vs NX11 - Mirrorless cameras tested and compared. We compare the Olympus PEN E-P3, Panasonic Lumix GF3, Samsung NX11, and Sony Alpha NEX-5.
All of these cameras fit into the mirrorless compact system camera category and feature Digital SLR sized sensors, but by removing the mirror from the camera, they offer much more compact sizes, and also new lens mounts to match the sensor.
Panasonic and Olympus both use Micro Four Thirds sensors (size 17.3 x 13mm - the same size as used in Four Thirds DSLRs) and Micro Four Thirds lens mounts, meaning you have a choice of Olympus and Panasonic lenses. Samsung and Sony use APS-C sized sensors (size 23.4x15.6mm - the same size as most DSLRs), and Samsung use the NX lens mount with 9 lenses available, and Sony use the E-Mount with 4 lenses available.
