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.

Olympus E-System

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Monday 25th, September 2006

The Olympus E-System is a “designed-for-digital” SLR camera system that has grown considerably since the original Olympus E-1 camera body was launched in 2003. Today, the system includes 5 camera bodies, 17 ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses, and a wide range of accessories. In addition to this growth in the E-System lineup, we have lead the way with innovations such as a Dust-Reduction System, fulltime Live View, and the introduction of the world’s lightest, most compact, digital SLR camera body. We think of this as Chapter One in the history of the Olympus E-System, and we hope it has helped more people to enjoy photography and be satisfied with the quality of the images they obtain.
