High-end Olympus digital SLR cameras has been languishing with the aging E-1 camera, which is only 5 megapixels. But now they finally have releases a major new camera for pro and advanced amateurs. (The fact that they skipped an "E-2" model tells something about how much time has passed. I guess they figured that it would look old in a time when both Canon and Nikon has gone to "3" models.)
This is the first time in a (semi?) professional camera body that we get in-body image stabilization and also an articulating LCD screen, for shooting at unusual angles.
