Thanks John. I am glad to have had the opportunity to read the specs in some detail and have posted my views on the other E30 thread.

Re: Olympus announces midrange E-30 dSLR, plus new version of the 14-54mm lens

Far from it Jim. This would be a great contribution. Think about the problems of front/back focussing we early E3 owners had. We ended up having to swap hardware. This could be a win - win and...

Re: Olympus announces midrange E-30 dSLR, plus new version of the 14-54mm lens

Re: Olympus announces midrange E-30 dSLR, plus new version of the 14-54mm lens

Thats a great idea. I feel guilty now for ever having raised the subject in this thread as all it seems to have done is muddy the debate over the E30 which I had NOT intended to do. They are two...

Re: Olympus announces midrange E-30 dSLR, plus new version of the 14-54mm lens

2. Also in my first...

Re: Olympus announces midrange E-30 dSLR, plus new version of the 14-54mm lens

I too was dissappointed in Ian's response but still cannot believe that Olympus would ignore this. Nor do I think that the 4/3 sensors cannot achieve better colour depth. Some of the reason for...

Re: Olympus announces midrange E-30 dSLR, plus new version of the 14-54mm lens

Hugh,

The difference two bits makes is incredible. With 12 bits you get 4095 levels whilst 14 bits gives you 16,383 to play with. The trouble with digital is that the analogue info is sampled with...

Ian, Its a nice spec and a good fill-in which compares reasonably with the competition but lets see the UK Price.

Re: Olympus announces midrange E-30 dSLR, plus new version of the 14-54mm lens

Pitch is the vertical angle from the camera to the subject and roll is the angle, off horizontal. The way I see this is that this would be useful for tripod or monopod use but nothing else.

Re: Olympus announces midrange E-30 dSLR, plus new version of the 14-54mm lens

But C-Net got the info from somewhere. Seriously Ian, Olympus (and others) could make better use of the internet than they currently do. They should be the first to make an announcement and, given...

Re: Olympus announces midrange E-30 dSLR, plus new version of the 14-54mm lens

Thats the power of the internet Ian (and unfortunate lack of coordination in release info by Oly).
