I am so excited!!

I have, right now, in my possession...

The Olympus E-3 ~ my dream camera!!

It has the FASTEST auto focusing of any professional camera!! Click, click, click - all in focus with incredible detail.

And I have three days to play with it!!

Three days to be totally distracted with this new toy of mine...

and then Don's Photo photo wants it back!!!

But until then, I plan to put it through every test I can and take a thousand pictures!!!

Here she is... and isn't she beautiful???

I picked her up over lunch today and man it took a lot of self control to let her sit in the corner of my office all afternoon untouched!!

So, if I don't blog for a few days you will know what I am doing.
sigh... and then she has to go back.

The specs? Check this out! And this!

The E-3, the flagship of Olympus' Digital SLR line, combines speed and durability in a splash-proof magnesium alloy body. Early to embrace Live View and Dust Reduction features in a dSRL, Olympus now appears to offer the fastest autofocus in the world. Body-Integrated image stabilization , a 10-megapixel Live MOS image sensor, Supersonic Wave Drive and one of the largest and most accurate viewfinders prove Olympus is not sitting on their laurels but is still an innovator in photographic technology.

Are you ready for the "World's Fastest Autofocus" dSLR? Used in combination with the Zuiko Digital SWD ED 12-60mm f2.8-4 lens, the E-3’s new AF system is the world’s fastest.

it looks really compact and not too heavey either, if that is one complaint I have about my new camera, it is alittle heavy to carry around. I am excited for you too!!

Actually the camera is VERY heavy, especially with the power pac. And I am having a dickens of a time figuring out where everything is because there are more dials and buttons in the oddest places on this camera. I am a creature of habit and so this is just a matter of getting used to the camera and how to find everything quickly.
The auto focus is VERY fast even in lo light.
