New Olympus Flagship E3 D-SLR, Lenses & Flashes

There has been a great deal of excitement – though nothing quite near that leading to Saturday’s Rugby World Cup Final – about the launch of Olympus’ new flag ship Four Thirds camera. Well it’s finally here, the new E3 and it looks like a superb machine, I wonder though how well it will be received here in SA.

Along with the launch of the new camera there is a range of new lenses which feature Olympus‘ own Supersonic Wave motors to answer the growing market of USM, HSM, AFS etc, from the competing brands. These lenses include a 14-35mm f/2 which on four thirds is equivalent to a 28-70mm f/2 in 35mm terms, a dream lens never achieved in the days of film.
