Olympus introduces their “flagship” DSLR, called the E-3. I can’t help but think it’s a year or so too
late in the coming. With Sony gearing up to introduce a full frame, probably next spring, Olympus and Pentax will be suddenly at the bottom–at least in the so-called “professional grade” race. But let’s not be too critical just yet, It might turn out to be a good camera, especially with the new lens announcements—expensive, like the Zuiko ED SWD 12-60mm $999 (24-120mm equiv) F/2.8-4.0, the 50-200mm $1199 (100-400mm equiv) F/2.8-3.5, and finally the 14-35mm $2299 (28-70mm equiv) F/2.0. Below are some specs for the new Olympus addition.
