Updated 12/23/08: The 10.1-megapixel E3, the top dog in Olympus's line of digital single-lens-reflex (DSLR) cameras, is an attractive package for both pros and serious amateurs. You have to be serious about your photography--and have plenty of arm stre...

The Olympus E-3 is certainly the most capable 4/3 DSLR to date. It has plenty of pro-features: a viewfinder with 100% coverage, built-in image stabilization, a weather-proof body and 5 FPS continuous drive. It is certainly as good as several Excelle...

Tough build quality, dust and splash-proof, Effective built-in anti-shake and anti-dust, Live View with fully-articulated screen, Quick handling and broad customisation.
Higher noise above 800 ISO than rivals, AF system fast but often searched, Some controls illogically placed, Very tough rival in the Nikon D300.
The Olympus E-3 is the flagship DSLR of the Four Thirds standard. Officially announced in October 2007, it comes four and a half years after its predecessor, the E-1. The original E-1 was the camera which launched the Four Thirds standard back in mid...

Very good image quality; full environmental seals; tilt/shift LCD screen with live view; fast auto-focus.
Not as good as the competition at high ISO; control layout is a little cumbersome; lacks customizability; menus are too complex.
The Olympus E-3 is a very good camera and one that deserves serious consideration. More than any other mid-range DSLR on the market right now, though, you need to handle the E-3 before buying. Its size and weight are formidable enough that you’l...

Excellent photo quality; fast performance; solid, dust- and splash-proof body; flip-and-twist LCD; large, 100 percent coverage viewfinder; built-in wireless flash controller.
Relatively low resolution for the price; smallish LCD, some clunky design aspects.
Despite some interface quirks and a slightly awkward design, the Olympus E-3 fares quite well against its midrange dSLR competition.
