    Anyone use an Olympus digital camera here? I own a E300 and want to know whether anyone else here loves Olympus (also have Nikons too).

    I'm a long time Olympus user. Have an old OM-1, then I got the Centurion APS camera back in the mid 90s, and just got a µ Digital 600 (Stylus 600) for Christmas, that I'm very happy with.

    Too broke to get myself a DSLR, but an E-series camera is the strongest competitor to the Canon EOS350D/Digital Rebel XT, which is at the top of my wish list at the moment. Cannot see myself getting a Nikon... but, then again, that might change...

    History suggest I'm going to end up with an Olympus, though... ;)

    I have an E500 and love it. I've also owned a few Olympus P&S digitals before.

    I love the E500 though I set out to buy either a Canon or Nikon for my first SLR. I seem to always come back to Oly.

    I don't own the Olympus DSLR's; but I do sell them. They are great cameras, and they are at the forefront IMO in lens design for DSLRs IMO.

    bousozoku, IIRC, is an Olympus DSLR user too.

    In some strange way I do too; but the dim screen on the E-330 limits my desire.

    They need a L1B without the live view to make me really happy.

    Indeed, on all points. :)

    I've had my E-1 for two years now but it's my 3rd Olympus digital and my 5th Olympus camera overall.

    I almost ended up with a Nikon D70. I could never end up with a Canon SLR.
