Excellent image quality, good ergonomics and build, menu system, comprehensive feature set and customisability, super control panel, top plate display, responsive, good dust reduction system, great weather sealingFastest focus rate only available with Olympus’ Super Sonic Wave drive lenses, bulky for its class but particularly for a FourThirds Format camera! Cramped top plate buttons, not much headroom in RAW files, complex menus
Olympus' new flagship DSLR replaces the now very long in the tooth E1 and bridges that gap for Olympus aficionados between enthusiast and professional shooting. It's big, heavy, and very capable but not without its flaws

Olympus’s Four Thirds sensor limits your lens choices, but the E-3 takes excellent pictures. The Olympus E-3 is a beefy, 10-megapixel, semipro DSLR aching to beat up on the competition. But at $1,700 for its magnesium-muscled body and another $900...
