Olympus E-10 review

I noted so many complaints about focusing problems by other users that I lost my excitement about having one of these SLRs at the now affordable price - around £860. But when I handled one, and especially noted the direct use of non-menu controls, I was hooked. Though there is still a problem with focusing in some lighting situations. (We will have to wait for the X3 chips to improve things.)
The camera handles well and makes great images. I have read comments by some users about overcoming the focus problem, like telling the camera that it is using add-on lenses etc, but I haven't tried yet. More later.


It's a big beast, but that's how I like cameras. Focus still a problem, but hopefully will be outwitted. It will be worth it for a steal of a great machine.
