Summary: Though the DSLRs get all the credit these days, the E-10 was actually the camera that convinced many of us that digital could simply replace film with no loss in quality. It is built like a tank, with its rubber skin and metal frame yielding durability and feel that still haven't been bettered, and its controls are as sturdy and functional as any Leica's.
Excerpt: My E-10 is painfully obsolete, but I won't part with it. It still does great things for me, and every feature still works. I'm not sure how long I've had this camera. Probably since 2003. I bought it new at the time. It was a little obsolete then, so I was able to get it for a good price. Olympus was still selling them at the time. Now they are a good e-auction find. The camera is 4 megapixels. That's not a lot by today's standards, but the photos are sharp.
Summary: I bought this used as a Christmas gift for my 18 year old son, it arrived quickly in great condition. My son is very pleased with this camera. Its a great starter camera for a young novice with a natural eye for photography.
