Summary: I hate this camera. It's finicky and very difficult to get it to focus. If the lighting isn' perfect you're out of luck. I thought perhaps it was just me, but when I passed it over to a more experienced SLR camera user they had similar problems. I really wish I got a different camera.
A classic "tank" -- one of my favorite cameras ever!

Summary: Why am I now bothering to write a review of a camera that's 5 or 6 years old? Because it's a true classic (like the Oly E-10) and worthy of the effort. I love cameras. I have a fair number. I started out as a kid and have always loved photography.
Summary: Fantastic camera. I've been able to take some great shots with this baby and have had no problems. I'm using for memory (About 950 pics on HQ) and my time between shots is less than a sec. I don't even notice anytime between shots really.
Summary: I was very exctied to receive this item, as it was a valentines day gift for my wife, until she tried to use it, so far its been in twice for repair for the same problem, the lenses will not focus.
Summary: I bought this camera in September of 2005. In the last year and a half it has served me very well. I have taken 7500 pictures and the camera is going strong! I have taken pictures in all settings, light and dark, bright light and shadow, and the photos turn out nicely.
Summary: This camera is well worth every penny. I shoot mostly wildlife and landscape photograpy and both my Zuiko 14-45mm and 40-150mm lenses see plenty of action. The 14-45 is a great all purpose lense that doubles both as a semi-wide angle and a short Telescopic lens.
Summary: I love this camera, it photographs great, it has great lenses. Now the great thing about this camera is that you can pick the types of photographic scenes you'll be taking in automatic setup or you can customize scene exposures and other photography features like in the oldschool 35mm cameras did...
Summary: I'm a photographer, i have this camera and a Rebel XT by Canon, Before switching to digital from film i did my research, i've always used PC World Magazine as my bible for purchasing any type of computer euipment, cameras or software. when i read their review of the Olumpus E300 i was impressed.
