Olympus E-3: Flagship dSLR finally launches
Olympus has announced the launch of the E-3, a 10-megapixel flagship dSLR using the Four Thirds lens standard and an adjustable live view LCD display
We hope you haven't been holding your breath. The Olympus E-3 dSLR camera has been announced a leisurely four years after its predecessor, the E-1. The E-3 is pitched at the professional level, with a 10-megapixel CMOS sensor, mechanical sensor-shift stabilisation and live view. And it's splashproof -- just look at our picture!
The Olympus E-3 will be available from the end of November 2007. The body only will be available for approximately £1,099, the kit with the 14-54mm lens for around £1,499 and the kit with the new 12-60mm lens will be in the neighbourhood of £1,699.

Update: As several of you pointed out, the Olympus E-3 is the flagship professional model model of the Olympus dSLR range, and not an entry-level model as we previously stated. Ahem. Sorry about that.
