17 April 2009
  • Conclusion: If you have had previous DSLR experience or you are enthusiastic and patient enough to take the time to learn, then the Olympus E-3 is a camera you should consider before making any final purchases. Dare not to conform and you may be well rewarded for that decision.

The Luminous Landscape
13 January 2009
  • Excerpt: The last six months in the digital SLR world have been very interesting. Just as I thought that technological development would start to level off, the big players, Canon and most notably Nikon, started dropping bombshells into the middle market in the guise of the 40D and D300.

The Luminous Landscape
13 January 2009
  • Excerpt: A Field Review on the Olympus E3 Photos and story by Douglas Brown With the release of the new professional grade E3, Olympus has signaled their re-entry into the pro market after allowing their last top-pro body, the E1, to become vastly out-speced by the competition over its 4 year life-span.

A Second Look: Olympus E-3

Pop Photo
16 December 2008
  • Excerpt: The people at Olympus have been known to joke about the Olympus E-2, the digital SLR that should have succeeded the pioneering but long-in-the-tooth Olympus E-1. I'm not clear how close to reality that camera ever came, but no matter.

Going Ultrawide with the Olympus E-3

Pop Photo
16 December 2008
  • Excerpt: We weren't content to get our hands on the Olympus Zuiko 300mm f/2.8 and EC-20 2x tele converter along with the new Olympus E-3 (see related story). We also wanted to go to the opposite extreme and check out one of the widest rectilinear Four Thirds lenses, the Olympus Zuiko 7-14mm f/4.0.

Extreme Reach with the Olympus E-3

16 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Among many a photographer the sensor factor is considered a bad thing. Usually these complaints focus on the wide end of things, where the smaller sensors make wide angle lenses less wide (see related story). But at the telephoto end, it's a different story.

Hands On: Olympus E-3 Digital SLR

Pop Photo
16 December 2008
  • Excerpt: If the Olympus E-1, the company's first high-end DSLR, never caught on among pros, you can blame its painfully slow, insensitive autofocus system. But one look at the new Olympus E-3 ($1,700, estimated street, body only) was enough to convince us that, this time around, Olympus has come up with not...

Camera Test: Olympus E-3

Pop Photo
16 December 2008
  • Excerpt: First impressions matter, especially for photographers seeking a picture-taking partner. But sometimes it takes a real effort to figure out if a DSLR is the perfect match for you. For instance, when Olympus introduced us to its new 10.1MP E-3 ($1,700, street, body only), it seemed like love at first...

Field Report: Olympus E-3

Pop Photo
16 December 2008
  • Excerpt: It doesn't take much of a camera to capture a simple snapshot. But what if you spot a little girl in the park standing amid a flock of startled pigeons? Or you're photographing the unpredictable twirls of dancers on a stage? Or you're shooting travel scenes in bright, contrasty mid-day sun?
