    The Canon-looking lens release.

    Perfect? No. But I'm buying it anyway. I really liked using my E-1
    and I don't think given it's legacy the E-3 will be a let-down.
    Olympus cameras are so trouble-free from an operating standpoint it is
    amazing. Interesting thing is that now Olympus has joined Canon/Nikon
    in one respect, the speed of the focusing system. Previously, their
    focusing speed was dismal compared to the competition. Their focusing
    accuracy however has always been outstanding, you just had to wait
    longer. But now, if you buy their new lenses with the ultrasonic
    motors, their (Olympus's) claim is the fastest focusing speed going.
    With older lenses and cheaper "kit" and regular grade lenses likely to
    be still slow even with the E-3, and the ultrasonic lenses being fast,
    Olympus has created (as has Canon and Nikon) a price hierarchy based
    not solely on f-ratio speed, build quality and optical quality. So
    while others have copied (sort of) Olympus's sensor cleaning and live
    view, Olympus has done the same with focusing and lens motors. I do
    not expect this new camera to come close to a FF Canon or Nikon when
    it comes to image quality overall, nor do I think it's dynamic range
    will match larger pixel sensors, but other aspects of the camera and
    it's output may exceed the competition's quality.

    I await with baited breath to see examples of your work... And from
    the E3 also!
