Olympus E-3 review


The E-3 doesn't offer many innovations, compared to either its competitors or Olympus lower-end models. What it does offer, though, is a fantastic build quality, excellent images and a functional, pleasant user experience. The Four Thirds system continues to impress and fans of the system are sure to have the E-3 on their shopping list. There are a few features that in camera Top Trumps, the Olympus E-3 would lose against its closest rivals ? for example, the relatively low resolution and the 5fps burst rate. For the majority of general-purpose photographers though, the Olympus E-3 is a fine all-rounder and an absolute jewel to use.
