Olympus E-30 Review at DC Resource

DC Resource has posted a review of the Olympus E-30.

Images are fairly sharp by D-SLR standards, with lots of detail captured. In terms of noise, the E-30 performs quite well, though if you look hard enough you’ll spot some noise in shadow areas of a photo (even at lower ISO settings).

Olympus E-30 Review at Let’s Go Digital

Let’s Go Digital has published a review of the Olympus E-30.

Even after extended testing, it turns out that the Olympus E-30 looks a lot like its big brother the E-3 when it comes to image characteristics. And although it features a different sensor and increased resolution; Olympus has issues like dynamic range and color reproduction nicely under control and is able to obtain an excellent result.

Olympus E-30 Review at Quesabesde

For our bilingual readers out there (yes, I know you’re out there), Quesabesde has published a hands-on review (and comparison to the E-3) of the Olympus E-30.

¿Puede suponer la E-30 el entierro de la E-3? Para el 90% de los usuarios, sin duda. Y es que sólo quienes necesiten trabajar con la cámara en condiciones extremas -polvo y agua mediando- no caerán en la tentación de ahorrarse unos euros y decantarse por la nueva E-30.

Olympus E-30 Initial Impressions Review at Photography Review

Photography Review has published an initial impressions review of the Olympus E-30.

I have to admit I was skeptical and felt like they were probably meant for someone else. But when I started to play with the Art Filters, I got kind of excited at the some of the results. And the perfectionist in me was pleased that you can shoot RAW + JPG and have an untouched RAW image available if you need it.

Olympus E-30 Review at Digital Camera Review

Digital Camera Review has published a first impressions review of the Olympus E-30.

Some initial questions aside, the E-30 is coming off as expected thus far, and with so much technology from the E-3 coming down into this more size-aware platform, it stands a strong chance of vying for a spot as my favorite Olympus DSLR to date.
