Review Photokina 2010 - At the time of the official introduction of the Olympus E-1, the first Four Thirds DSLR camera, on sunny Mallorca, the first step was made to set up the Four Thirds System. I was present, in 2003, and got to know the first generation Four Thirds DSLR camera. In the years thereafter, a lot of models were added, but there were few high-end Four Thirds DSLR cameras. Four years later came the Olympus E-3, which was an improvement on many fronts, and a nice evolution. Three years later, I ‘finally’ have my hands on the Olympus E-5, the newest Olympus Four Thirds DSLR camera. Do we still have to wait for a new DSLR evolution?
Report Photokina 2010 - Olympus has cornered the market in robust D-SLR design in recent years and its E-3 and E-1 cameras are synonymous with go-anywhere, shoot-anything pro-standard photography. Now Photokina will offer professional photographers a first reassuring grip of the new Olympus D-SLR powerhouse designed for imaging on the edge: the next generation flagship Olympus E-5. The direct successor to the award-winning E-3, the E5’s all-terrain lightweight rigid magnesium alloy body is dustproof, splashproof, incredibly robust - and ready to rough it on even the toughest assignments. And it’s not just the build quality that puts the competition to shame.
