The last is one of my standard 'test' shots for a lens & camera. Although I have had the E-P3 and 12mm lens for a little while now, this is the first time I have gone to the ex-railway bridge at Como. This is a really hard shot as the bridge is very dark with just 3 tiny solar powered lights at night and you have to wait for a passenger train to come over the new railway bridge to get adequate lighting. For this shot, I also upped the ISO to 400 and it is a 25 second exposure.

The first two shots are at ISO200 and for 20 and 30 seconds respectively. There is minimal post processing in these images and I haven't really paid any real attention to noise reduction. A little bit of attention there would have provided cleaner images but these will do. Provided you get the exposure right and keep to modest ISO levels, the E-P3 does perform reasonably well at night.
