Olympus has revealed the specs of their E-System and E-1. Currently, we have prices floating all over the net, and these prices are not to be considered the actual price you will pay. Highlights of the E-1:
* CF Slot - No more SmartMedia or other non-professional types of media. Kudos!
* ISO 100-800; selectable ISO Boost of 1600/3200
*Firewire or USB 2.0 connectivity
*1/4000sec shutter speed
*3fps (up to 12 frames--even RAW)
Olympus unveils two new websites for Professional Photographers (March 11, 2003)
Olympus has sent a newsletter to all who signed up for information relating to the E-System. In the Newsletter, Olympus says:
"At CeBIT, from March 12 to March 19, 2003, Olympus presents the first prototypes of its new professional digital SLR system." - Olympus March 11 2003 Newsletter
Also, In the same newsletter, they disclose two new websites, centering around their 4:3 system. The first website is www.olympus-pro.com, and the second website is www.four-thirds.com. Very exciting news for Olympus owners who currently own an E-Series camera, and have been tempted by Nikon and the latest Canon DSLR, the 10D. Prices and specifications are still not known.

Olympus at PMA 2003? (February 27, 2003)
One of the most anticipated camera manufacturers to be at the upcoming PMA in Las Vegas, is Olympus. After almost 2 years of talk about a DSLR and a venture with Kodak, the tension is really high.
