  • Summary: I REALLY wanted to like this camera but I simply cannot get over how soft the images are compared to my E-510. When I looked at the images coming out of the E-30 with the Zuiko 12-60mm SWD lens I knew something was definitely NOT right.

  • Excerpt: Although quite large including the battery hand grip it handles really well, superb design to hold and use.

  • Excerpt: The E-30 is Olympus's own stepping-stone between the so-called "prosumer" models (what an awful word) and the E-3 professional SLR, being loosely comparable with the likes of the Canon EOS 50D, the Nikon D90 and the Sony Alpha A-350.
  • Pros: Fold out LCD screen, Image Stabilization, Zuiko lens quality, Picture quality, Flash options
  • Cons: Noise in low light, Too many buttons, Badly laid out, Too many gimmicks

  • Excerpt: Last Saturday, I purchased the E-30 from a local dealer. My old camera was a Nikon F-301, bought more than 15 years ago. Just last week, this old Nikon became faulty. I took it to Nikon's service centre to repair it, but the repair man told me it is beyond repair.
  • Pros: Excellent auto - focus performance
  • Cons: NONE !  !  !

  • Excerpt: EN MI OPINION SE PRODUCE MUCHO RUIDO EN TODAS LAS CIRCUNSTANCIAS, LO QUE ME ESTRAÑA MUCHO YA QUE LA HE PROBADO Y COMPARADO CON LA E-520 Y ESTA ULTIMA PRODUCE MENOS RUIDO SIENDO UNA CAMARA ANTERIOR Y DE MENOR PRECIO. AGRADECERIA UNA OPINION Y O SOLUCION AL RESPECTO PORQUE POR LO DEMAS ME GUSTA MUCHO.
