Hi,

Just wondering if the E3 comes with a paper reference manual? Just been perusing the online one I found here.

http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/digicamera/download/manual/

Printed this one off at 156 pages compared to E1 at 186 pages, but its not the same as having a proper book.

Also saw the price reduction at DD as mentioned by Bruce Clarke and was wondering what people thought the body might go for nearer the end of the year. That kind of depreciation suggests it could be be ranged at the 700 mark?

Any thoughts?

John.

Hi

Yes, the E-3 comes with a paper copy of the manual at 163 pages including the index.

As for depreciation I would guess the body will go down to list price - cost of the freebies once the HLD-4 offer ends (HLD 200, bag 130 total reduction 330 for a guess).

Yes, there is a paper manual that comes with the E3.

Camera prices will inevitably drop but I was pleased to get the promotional items to soak up the price fall.

And while the manual will suffice to give you a basic understanding and how to program most things into your new camera, I found the review at 4/3 site to be excellent and goes more into depth on certain functions.
