I ought to explain I was fortunate to be given time with two pre production models over the last three weeks and now have a production example.

So far - mechanically refined and robust, great viewfinder compared to earlier Es, I love the articulating screen, the 12-60 seems fast and sharp, image noise at high ISOs is better than I had hoped, I really appreciate the splash-proof concept of the camera with certain lenses, very nice to have up to 24 5fps frames in RAW mode.. so far so good. I need to analyse image quality more (resolution, dynamic range, colour, metering accuracy, etc.).

MONDAY:- Dispactch New E-3 to shops with big red sign saying "Do not sell until 21/11/2007"

TUESDAY:- Press release in london with announcement that will be on sale from 21/11/2007,

WEDNESDAY:- Shops all over england do thier best day in sales all year as they sell out of E-3 and this forum Crashes with the members saying I have mine

Re: Who's received their E-3 then?

because I have ordered mine from a smaller retailer, mine may not arrive untill mid december, they have sent out one lens kit to the shop where I ordered it from, unfortunatly I have only ordered the body only.

i did meet the sales rep and the distributor and dropped enough hints that I want my E-3 NOW!! whilst at the Press event,

I hope all of those who get theirs over the next few days have a lot of fun

Re: Who's received their E-3 then?

If you are really eager Vokesie, and it is possible what with deposits etc, Digitaldepot.co.uk (web and shop but phoneing prob best) have body only packs going spare, atleast of 5.15pm tonight.

More importantly...
Looks like i'm the first on this thread atleast. Gat a call from Digitaldepot on the way home, my train conveniently went through Stevenage so collected just before they closed. Also picked up a Canon Ixus 860 for my girlfriends birthday - a really nice compact I think i'll enjoy using too.

OMG! Having your own is a great feeling I'm not sure I'll be able to sleep tonight. Going out tomorrow to play and get lost in the menus.

Look forward to seeing all our first shots as they get collected/delivered

Phil
