DP Review
3 February 2009
  • Conclusion: If you've taken the trouble to read every page of this review you'll already have a good idea where this conclusion is likely to go. To start with there's no doubt that the E-3 is, without a shadow of a doubt the best Four-Thirds camera ever made and a more than worthy (if a little tardy) successor...
  • Pros: Excellent build quality, weatherproofing, 150,000 shot shutter life, Big, bright viewfinder with 100% view, Articulated screen, Effective sensor-shift image stabilization, Very fast focus with new SWD lenses (less impressive with other lenses, however), Info screen offers quick and easy access to...
  • Cons: Resolution not as good as best in class (stronger AA filter?), though you won't see it in JPEGs, Highlight dynamic range not quite as good as competitors (better than other E-Series cameras): Some highlight clipping on bright days unless you reduce exposure, Poor auto white balance in artificial ...

  • Conclusion: Olympus E3 digital reflex camera The past few years we have seen a lot of DSLRs from Olympus passing by but it took a long time before the successor to the E1 arrived. Apparently Olympus wanted to test a few things before surprising the professional photographer.

Olympus E-3

Camera Labs
1 May 2008
  • Summary: It comes as no surprise to learn the Olympus E-3 is by far the most powerful Four Thirds DSLR to date, and one that’s more than a worthy successor to the original E-1. After all, Olympus had four and a half years between the launch of the E-1 and its long-awaited successor, giving the company ample...
  • Pros: Tough build quality, dust and splash-proof., Effective built-in anti-shake and anti-dust., Live View with fully-articulated screen., Quick handling and broad customisation.
  • Cons: Higher noise above 800 ISO than rivals., AF system fast but often searched., Some controls illogically placed., Very tough rival in the Nikon D300.

Olympus E-3 Review

What Digital Camera
2 January 2008
  • Summary: The E-3 doesn’t offer many innovations, compared to either its competitors or Olympus lower-end models. What it does offer, though, is a fantastic build quality, excellent images and a functional, pleasant user experience.
  • Pros: Build, interface, stabilisation, detail, LCD screen.
  • Cons: Slowish frame rate, noise at high ISO.

D-Photo and The Photographer's Mail
18 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Mandatory equipment Sometimes when you receive a camera you ¨wish all the accessories had come with it too. ¨But when the Olympus E-3 arrived at my place it was like being an eight-year-old stepping into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.
  • Pros: Swivelling screen

Pocket Lint
16 September 2008
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, good ergonomics and build, menu system, comprehensive feature set and customisability, super control panel, top plate display, responsive, good dust reduction system, great weather sealing
  • Cons: Fastest focus rate only available with Olympus’ Super Sonic Wave drive lenses, bulky for its class but particularly for a FourThirds Format camera! Cramped top plate buttons, not much headroom in RAW files, complex menus

Olympus E-3 Review

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Al met al heeft de Olympus E-3 bij mij een uitstekende indruk achtergelaten. Het is een zeer doordachte camera, waar de gebruiker centraal staat. En dat is bij lang niet alle andere cameramerken zo.
