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 camera is everything that the other reviews claim. I now use the E-10 instead of my 35mm SLR for customized shots and don't really miss the 35mm's flexibility. Built-in flash is quite capable (other than the short distance from the lens). Battery consumption is excellent -- batteries last several days to a week of pretty heavy vacation shooting (if you don't go overboard on using the LCD screen and do remember to turn the camera off promptly).
No better for the price, but not a "casual" camera.

Summary: When I set out to make my camera purchase, I was trying to decide between a Minolta Dimage 7, a Sony DSC-F707, and the Olympus E-10. After holding all three in my hands and shooting with them, there is no comparison -- the E-10 is a camera and feels and works like an SLR body, the Minolta and the Sony are just consumer electronics.
