Offers for Olympus E-30

Community Quote

The E-30 is Olympus's own stepping-stone between the so-called "prosumer" models (what an awful word) and the E-3 professional SLR, being loosely comparable with the likes of the Canon EOS 50D, the Nikon D90 and the Sony Alpha A-350.

The menus are easy to read and relatively easy to use, with most of the common functions being available on the ..." Read review

Artistic camera for artistic photographers

AdvantagesExcellent auto-focus performance

Prominently, it packs a 12.3 megapixel lens, which makes every picture you take, look more artistic, even without using the PC's software. One of the features in the E-30 is Art ..." Read review
