Olympus E-1 review

I love this camera, it is built like a tank and handles easily. In the E-1 all the issues I had with the E-20 have been fixed.

Pros:
- Excellent, film-like picture quality (up to ISO 800 perfect for my purposes)
- intuitive handling
- versatile, full manual control
- focus works fast
- AF + manual fine-tuning
- outstanding quality lenses (Zuiko)
- weather sealing
- dust shaker
- versatile WB settings, very accurate AWB with flash
- user-upgradable firmware

Cons:
What I wouldn't mind is better image quality at ISO 1600 and 3200.
- no live histogram
