Summary: This camera did everything I needed it to do. It probably did more then I required but I'd recommend this camera to anyone. The lenses for this system are wonderful. Weather sealant came in handy lots of times, swivel lcd screen was great. This camera was my workhorse.
Summary: I have all sealed lenses now, and down the beach this is a real boon!! We often wade in up to chest height and as you might imagine than means a lot of salt water about. It has never been a problem - though it is not submersible :) The E5 has picked up all the minor niggles and I guess I should...
Excerpt: This camera has the fastest auto focus I have ever seen. It has many options for the focus. It also has dust reduction that works and is built like a tank. I used the camera in all weather conditions including subzero and it worked flawless. The Olympus E3 is a very fast camera with many features.
Summary: I love Olympus DSLRs and currently own the E-1, E-500, E-510 & E-520, I had been holding out on the E-3 due to it's high price, but I eventually caved in and got one as I was finding my E-1 trailing in terms of resolution and missed the IS on the newer bodies.
Summary: I have not had the opportunity to used my new camera very much. Most my time so far has been spent reading the camera manual. Boy, this is a complex machine! I am sure that I will learn to appreciate all the possibilities, however, fair warning expect to do some learnin'. Oct, 2011.
Summary: On my first day of field use the lens cap fell and broke. The second day of field use, the flash hotshoe cover was missing. On the third day, the remote cable cap was missing. The only cap that stayed on so far is the flash remote cap.
Summary: I upgraded to the E3 from my e500. Some of the things that enticed me were the additional focus points, and articulated screen. Everything else about the camera was just added niceness. The camera is pretty great. It's an obvious step up from the e500 in terms of quality, and performance.
A 4 month usage of the E3 combined with 4 E-300 bodies + lenses

Summary: 4+ Month update on the camera: This is still by far the best SLR cam from olympus. Neat features are everywhere like a full compliment of buttons on the portrait grip, and the ability to shoot as fast as your memory card can write, with the sandisk IV 5 FPS.
Conclusion: Att använda: 3 Hållbarhet: 4
Kameran ger fina färger och är relativt lätt att ställa in som man vill. Däremot är knapparna lite utspridda och pilliga som t ex gör det svårt att tektilt skilja på ISO och exp komp knapparna. Brusar som min gamla D200.
Pros: Ganska rejält byggd, vridbar TFT, ljus rel stor sökare, bra batteritid i rel till batteristorlek, direkt åtkomst till funktioner utan menyer, vädertätad.
Cons: TFT något lågupplöst, pilliga knappar svårt sköta med handskar, sökare har lite dålig kontrast svårt med manuell fokus, TFT höljet i plast inger inte förtroende i hållbarhet. Väldigt repkänsligt glas över TFTn. Att den går att vrida runt som skydd hjälper men har det kommit in sand på panelen bak...
