Here we have 28 JPEG images for you to download from our second sample of the Olympus E-30 DSLR, which goes on sale around this time next month. The camera body supplied by Olympus UK has version 1.0 firmware and all the pictures were taken with a matching Zuiko Digital 14-54mm f/2.8-3.5 II standard zoom lens. In-camera noise filter mode was left at the standard setting (centre of of five levels).

Quite a few of these samples are taken at higher ISO settings of 800, 1600 and 3200 ISO, because there will be a added interest in the performance of the new 12MP LiveMOS sensor in the E-30.
