    Olympus E-30 Preview Is Live

    My Olympus E-30 preview article is live. It's got samples of all the Art Filters, full-res studio sample photos, and a little on the new camera's features and performance. I have to admit, I'm impressed. I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would. Please post your comments and questions at the end of the article in the comments section. We'll use your comments as review fodder.

    By the way, we got one of only 10 cameras released. I think this may be the first real article on the E-30 that's been published

    well, mostly i was meaning that you got 1/10 of these and you have one of, if not the, first hands-on previews of it. way to go.

    for the camera....it's just too tough to try to compare it to the rest of the olympus line because of the reported price. it almost seems like it wouldve been better to make an updated e-3 instead. with the price of the e-3 dropping, it couldve probably taken the same spot that the e-30 is going into now. then an updated e-3 couldve taken the e-3's current spot.
    i dont know, guess we just have to see what kind of kit prices and rebates they come out with to help the e-30 fit in the olympus line-up where it seems to belong.

    it is great to see examples of the new sensor though. and of course its great to see more of your killer images from the mountain. =)
