E-30 review at BIOFOS

John's initial review can be found here:

http://www.biofos.com/esystem/e30_tst.html

Part 2 follows once John swaps his pre production E-30 with a production one.

Re: E-30 review at BIOFOS

As always, an interesting read. Thanks for the link Ian.

So much will depend on the price point the E30 settles at. I see the E3 is now under 900 on SRS Microsystems' website.

I was especially interested to hear the ME1 isn't satisfactory. Hopefully someone will try the E30 with legacy lenses at some point and test whether focusing is any easier than on the E5xx or E4xx...

Re: E-30 review at BIOFOS

The Review is now updated after 12 days with a production camera and he still seems to like it

The reviews continue to be good and I may have some serious thinking to do - I only hope the price drops a little after the initial launch

Regards
Andy
