The long awaited Olympus E-3 announcement is finally over. Olympus today released their latest dSLR for professional photographers the Olympus E-3. Below are some photos and informations.
London, 17 October 2007 – It’s here: The new flagship of the Four Thirds Standard-based Olympus E-System. The E-3 gives photographers a high-performance tool that is primed for any assignment and satisfies the most stringent demands for D-SLR photography. It represents the ultimate choice for the professional photographer and provides the highest levels of speed and image quality as well as Live View capabilities and the ultimate in reliability.
Olympus’ booth is situated in the centre of the exhibition
hall, one cant possibly missed it. I had a few words with Leo Goh of Olympus Malaysia
and tested out their latest dslr the Olympus E-510. Apart from that, I tried
the Zuiko 300mm F2.8 mounted on an E-330. Almost full range of Olympus lens
were present at the show, some half-cut mock up were seen. An Olympus P-1 mock
up were present too.
According to Leo, the Olympus E-510 with Image Stabilization (IS) activated is able to maintain 100% sharpness of the photo up to 3-stops down. As user goes to 4-stops down, 90% sharpness is believed to be achievable.
We have been hearing about Olympus releasing their E-3 at Korea not recently. According to DPreview , they have received words officially that it will be out on 17 October 2007, but is still not sure about the details spec and even its name. My guess is that it will be called as E-3 despite all the "mysteries".
