Hi Adrian,

Sorry for technical glitch with the product photos gallery - working to fix that at the moment.

I will be adding a video tour of the menus later this morning.

Basically the E-3 is fine camera body and Olympus has updated it. It should appeal to existing E-System users, but as you say, it's a conservative update and is unlikely to bring lots of new people to the E-System.

I did not do any image quality tests on the pre-production sample I had - ity was very early, didn't even have serial number.

But later samples are likely to be available at Photokina next week.
