    How do you like this camera...I have a E500 and well this one from what I read blows my camera out the water...Did you get a new lense or are you using the same Zuiko lenses that w/o the new motor

    I really enjoy the E3 the lay out is very intuitive after a little time with the camera it is very fast to navigate without ever taking your eye out of the VF. I did get the 12-60 with the body and it so far seems to be performing very well I have not had a lot of time to shoot with it. I did my first event with it this past weekend and the combination did very well. the more I shoot with it the better performance is and it gets better daily. I should say I get better with it daily doing it a little more justice day to day.

    Im really thinking about getting this camera...Money is a little tight at the moment so 3k is hard to let loose...

    So is the AF really as fast as Olympus states it is?

    It is fast I can not say that it is faster then every other camera out there as I have not had the privilege to handle them all. I also wont say that it will beat every camera in every situation but I will say it will be hard to find some one who uses it that will be truly disappointed with it. I personally have never used a faster focusing camera. I have been testing it in my house which has very poor lighting capturing my 2 year old daughter , she is always running and the AF is performing rather well for the conditions.

    With todays market in prosumer bodies being so competitive I think Olympus has put together a tool that will be hard to deny by many that it is a very easy to use and productive tool. Which in this market a Dslr had better be or else it will stay on the shelfs.

    Thanks and congrats on the new camera I am thinking of picking up a 510 as well since the price drop for a great backup and carry around.
