    I heard rumors of financial problems at Olympus that hindered the development of this model. For whatever reason, it took a really long time for the E1 upgrade, and as an E1 user, I hope this model was worth the wait.

    This really looks good. I love the pop-out LCD!! What an innovation to a prosumer DSLR camera…I bet Canon and Nikon will copy this feature and add it to their future DSLR cameras. Just like the live-preview and sensor cleaning system technology. GO OLYMPUS!!!

    I agree with Rex,I’m a E-1 user too and been waiting for the new release for a long time,I’m about to sell all my Olympus lenses and cameras to change brand, the new models from canon and nikon like D-40 and D300 are really atractive.I love my olympus gear and I hope they release the E-3 soon.
