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.
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.

Summary: I have used the Olympus E-10 continually since 2001. I had owned three previous digital cameras by Olympus but the E-10 was the first model that completely satisfied me. I take photographs for business (technical publishing) and pleasure and mostly use my images in digital form, although I have made satisfying prints up to 16 x 20 inches. I find this camera easy and enjoyable to use and the image quality exceptional.
Summary: this is the only slr DIGITAL camera, I've had a slr film camera for a few years and could never go back to a point and click camera ever, and i bought a few digital camera before this one but they weren's slr style and the pictures never impressed me at all, basically i dont have much to compare this camera to digital slr wise, but i am VERY happy with the image quality and everything else about the camera
Summary: I've been a serious hobbyist photographer for more than 25 years and this is my sixth digital camera. After looking for more than a few months I settled on the Olympus E-10 for its high quality photographs. There are other cameras with more mega-pixels and more powerful zoom lens but few if any of those will come close to the quality that this camera produces. There are manual controls for everything and that big lens just sucks in the light for great low light pictures.
Summary: I started my DSLR career with this cam. Have a film Leica R series with $15,000 in lenses but wanted to expand horizons. This camera is great. I have had mine for 18 months, still learning new thngs about it, keep the owners manual close. I also purchased the MCON and Telephoto 1.45. Macros are really great with the MCON. Tele is okay but only gives you 200 equivalent which isn't always enough. Some of my photos have been good enough to sell in the local art gallery.
Summary: I am an amateur who has been taking nature and action photographs with Nikon SLRs for many years. The light is often crummy and my subjects move about. I used an Olympus C-3000 for two years and immediately fell in love with the flat response of the CCD compared to film. However, that squinchy little rangefinder, and that long pause before the image is actually recorded.. I really found I needed a large bright through-the-lens viewfinder.
Summary: I recieved my camera about 4 months ago, and except for a few minor complaints, I have been very happy. The camera takes excellent pictures, and the manual controls are very easy to use and allow very professional looking results. Prints from the camera to a P400 Olympus printer look excellent up to 8.5X11 inches (I am sure they would look better on a bigger print, but that is as big as my printer can do). My only complaint in the LCD screen.
