Summary: I have always liked Olympus cameras I already own an e410.but found it was not quite good enough for night shooting.And I heard the e30. was better. On the down side. The e30 is heavier and kind of bulky. I have not used it in the month I have owned it. because of the bad weather.
Summary: Recently purchased the E-30 (Used) to replace or complement my six year-old E-510. The learning curve was about five minutes. A few controls were switched around for the better. Excellent heft and feel. Obviously accepts all of my Zuiko lenses. I am very happy with the quality of photos.
Summary: My E30 was purchased in 2010 to replace a venerable E500 which did not have image stabilization. I paired the E30 with a which is a superb lens. Another lens I use is the for wide angle work - mainly building interiors and landscapes.
This camera came in great shape. I use it all the time and love it.

Summary: I needed a back up camera body for my current camera. I use this camera body all the time and am very happy with it. I am so happy I had a choice to purchase a used camera body with a warrantee.
This is an excellent camera packed with features and easy to use!

Summary: This is a great camera. Fast light weight and on the money. I like the controls and features. For the money this is the best camera I have ever owned. While it is a bit bigger than the E 500 I had before it is well worth the extra weight and space.
Summary: I purchased the E-30 from Amazon.com and love it. It's smaller and lighter than the E-3 and has more features. Is the E-3, E-5 is to large and expensive and you don't need the weather sealing, this is the camera for you. Gives you eautiful images with very little noise.
Summary: The camera is fast and resposive; works well in conjunction with the Zuiko 12-60 SWD and my Zuiko 50-200 ED. I wish I had bought the SWD version of the longer lens, the difference wasn't noticable with my Olympus e410 but now it matters on the football field!
