Exclamation A production spec E-30 has arrived!

Yesterday afternoon I picked up a production spec. E-30 and 14-54 II from Olympus UK.

I'm allowed to talk about image quality and to upload samples

These will be released later this evening - 28 images in all taken in the winter sunlight here in Hemel late this morning today. These will be published in an article on FTU.

Tomorrow on FTU, I'll be comparing high ISO samples from an E-3, E-30 and... a Nikon D300.

I haven't had a thorough look at the high ISO comparison shots just yet, but my initial glee at the improvement in high ISO quality over the E-3 is thankfully confirmed. There is no banding any more and the grain that is there is quite manageable. Chroma noise is kept well under control as well.

More coming soon!
