Re: New review of E-3 in DpReview

Again, thanks!

Try to get to see an E-3 and check it out first hand. Compare it with the competition. One big revelation will be the viewfinder view, which is now enormous thanks to the new tilted pentaprism Olympus uses. The size and weight is about the same as its competitors, which some have criticised because of the Olympus marketing message of Four Thirds being a compact platform. But for a camera of this type, the users have dictated over the years that the size and weight that has evolved is ideal for best handling, especially when used with big lenses.
