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.

You may know me better as 'Admin', as I work more behind the scenes to keep PhotoComment running smoothly, so here is a short history of how I got here. I started working in a camera store right out of high school having never picked up a camera before. I spent a few years working there and then moved to wholesale and then made a big change and went into the cycling industry for a few years, however I could not stay away and made the move back into the photography industry and have been working with PhotoComment since March 2008. It has become a passion and a labor of love to bring the best photographic content to you.
