Review of E-3 in Febuary DSLR User and one in the competition

I've just picked up a copy of the Febuary DSLR user which has a review of the E-3 in it http://www.dslruser.co.uk/viewpage.php?page_id=1

It also has one on offer in this months competition which is for kitchen still life competition http://www.dslruser.co.uk/viewpage.php?page_id=184

I'll read it a little later and post an opinion of no-one else does

Regards
Andy

Re: Review of E-3 in February DSLR User and one in the competition

Well I've read the review now and it makes the usual comments re colour noise in shadows at High ISO and the inevitable comparisons with Canon and Nikon re that, but it also makes some fairly complimentary comparisons and the reviewer (Adam Scorey) determines in his conclusion that he would happily recommend it or buy one himself.

Opinions are that some controls are a bit fiddly, but you soon get used to them. I'm sure many here could comment on that.

Overall it's compared fairly favourably with the Alpha 700, Pentax K100, Canon 40D and the Nikon D300

Regards
Andy
