I can't help but tell you. It's been a little over an hour since I arrived at home with my new camera. The battery isn't even charged yet. I'm almost too excited to breathe. For the last couple of months, I've been photographing the local high school wrestling team. My digital camera was what Olympus called a Zoom Lens Reflex--a one piece SLR. Once I got the lighting sorted with a proper flash, it turned out better than average quality photos. The only trouble was that it was short on manual and long on automatic. The E-1 solves all that for me. It is immediately similar to my C-2500L and my OM-1N but distinctly different as well. The lenses are quite compact at half the size of the equivalent 35mm lenses. Right now, they don't feel as though they weigh less though. The 50-200mm (100-400mm 35mm equivalent) and the body come to about 4 pounds. It's not bad considering the reach. Of course, if you have a warehouse of lenses, Olympus or otherwise, you can't use them. Kodak and Fuji are both on the bandwagon so it should be interesting to see where their next professional offerings go. Kodak helped develop the system and supply the CCD. Anyway, I hope this battery charges soon. I'm going to lose my daylight soon.
