Very good camera for it's time and still very usable

Jeffrey Maye, Amazon
17 August 2014
  • Summary: 6 Years after purchase this camera still does not fail. Even though I recently purchased the OMD-EM1, I still use the E-3 as my backup. It is a solid and trust worthy camera.

Upgrade from Olympus E-1

Kasanwidjojo Romeo "rom", Amazon
24 April 2013
  • Summary: After a hiatus on photography decided to dust off my camera equipment and start shooting again. Since we completed the new pond decided to use that as subject matter. Using the E-1 and the 70-300 to get close and personal it was apparent that one the body was not fast enough to capture the swimming fish and two it seems the lens was not fast enough given the shooting conditions. Buying a faster lens was not an option given the prices the 50-200 is going for currently.

New dslr

Tom Linkens, Amazon
19 February 2013
  • Summary: So far so good, but I haven't used it on any actual work just yet. Just wish that the instruction manual had been included. Taking the strap off my E410 and putting it on the E3 was also an adventure in itself.

Stunning

Ali Roustai, Amazon
19 January 2013
  • Summary: I ended up buying this camera now in 2013! Mainly because I liked my Olympus macro 50 mm lens which I was using with an adapter on a micro four third camera unfortunately the focus was too slow (~4seconds).But now it's blazing fast. I plan to use this camera at low ISO, I am simply amazed with the image quality and the fine tuned amount of detail in the images. If you are looking for high ISO performance this camera is not for you because it's 5 years old.

  • Summary: I received this wonderful camera promptly and in excellent condition. It looks brand new. I shot about fifty pictures with it to get the feel of it and found it to be everything it is advertised to be and then some.

OLYMPUS E-3

STAR*MAN, Amazon
9 April 2011
  • Summary: I WAS MOST IMPRESSED BY THE E-3'S IMAGING ABILITY. IT OUT RESOLVED MY NEW NIKON D700 IN A LOW LIGHT SELF PORTRAIT - AND AT 1/3 THE ISO, BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE DON'T GRASP THE ENGINEERING LEAP MADE BY GIVING THE E-3 IN BODY IMAGE STABILIZATION! MY E-3, AT ISO 200 - OUT RESOLVED MY NEW D700 AT ISO 500 IN A LOW LIGHT SELF PORTRAIT. YES, I UNDERSTAND ISO's. I SHOT THE D700 AT ISO 500 TO ELIMINATE MY MOVEMENT - IT WAS NOT COMPLETELY SUCCESSFUL.

I love my Olympus E-3

E. Lopez, Amazon
24 September 2010
  • Summary: I have to admit. I go to class with this camera and all the Nikon and Canon people look at this camera with ahh!! I have the E-520 and E-3. I'm crying now that the E-5 just came out but i will have to wait when the price drops a little. Its amazing the pictures it takes. I use the Zeiko and Sigma lenses. I've been reading and hearing the new companies joining four thirds and excited what this technology will be coming out next.

Great colors, rugged camera, a workhorse, ideal for travel

Luca P.C.P., Amazon
20 December 2009
  • Summary: I have had my E-3 for two years now. It is a fantastic camera, and a real workhorse. The E-3 has an external white balance sensor, and in part due to that, in part due to the famed Olympus color processing, the photos it takes have wonderful color -- both natural, and incredibly pleasing. The low-light sensitivity is perhaps not on par with other cameras: I find it acceptable up to ISO 1250 only.
