  2. Rich had to find an obscure website in China to find one that agrees
    with him.

    I think the person who posted those images said it best:

    Hey, Rich. How's the website coming along?

    They haven't released the E-3 yet, just like all the other cameras,
    the Far East gets them first.

    test target for Canon and Olympus is a Nikkor box!
    I bet they didn't use that.

    So you are saying that the brand new not yet released is better than the
    previous model Canon, wellFFS I would effing well hope so mate. According to
    you though the 40D gets kicked by the K10D.

    Well, if the brand new Olympus can't beat a 2 year old
    camera, there is something seriously wrong.

    Why? Do you think sensors have changed that much? Besides, up until
    recently, Canon had the best sensors, measured in nearly every
    aspect. It's reasonable that a company that was far from that claim
    (Olympus) only 2nd gen serious camera would likely not be much better
    than a 2 year old Canon. But, if that comparison I posted is accurate,
    do you think the 40D will be enough of an improvement on the 30D to
    nullify the results if the test was done with it against the E-3? I
    doubt it.

    Sensors have improved quite a bit in the last few years. I
    haven't seen detailed analysis of the 40D vs 30D yet, but
    the 400D had lower noise than the lower resolution 350D, so
    I'd expect 40D vs 30D to be similar.
    Look at all the high MP compact cameras that are achieving
    better noise characteristics than the lower MP compacts of a
    couple of years ago, and you can further see that sensors
    have improved.
    Not only have the sensors improved, but the data processing
    algorithms have improved too.
