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.
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.
Summary: This is my 6th digicam and likely my last (for a while) :-). I started with a Kodak D460, moved thru three Olympus Camera's including the D400, C2000, and C2500, then the Nikon's: the 950 and the 990. I must say that I really enjoyed the C2000 and the the Nikon's the most. I continue to think of the 990 as a superb digicam whose macro ability is without peer. Having said that, I thoroughly enjoy the E-10! From the moment I picked it up, I think I was hooked.
Summary: Having worked as a 4x5 and 6x7 studio photographer for over 25 years, i have ventured into the digital realm with great skepticism. Superlatives don't exist for how pleased I was when I tried the E10. A freind loaned me his, actually he had to force it on me, for a family trip to DisneyWorld, and I didn't even use it till the last day we were there! Reluctantly on the last day, I decided to spend the morning trying it out.
