Olympus are known for making top class DSLR cameras that are weather resistant. Now they have released a successor to the E-3, a DSLR called Olympus E-5. Let us hear what Photography Blog has to say about this camera.

Some key features for the Olympus E-5:
-Weather-sealed body
-12 megapixel image sensor
-3″ 920k LCD screen
-Live View with Contrast AF
-HD video recording
-Shutter speeds of up to 1/8000
-Art filters
-HDMI port

Photography Blog gives the E-5 a very good review with an overall rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars and calls it “Highly Recommended”. The Olympus camera scores highest on design, features and image quality, a little lower on ease of use while it scores lowest on value for your money. The blog claims that the E-5 is the best Four Thirds camera made to date. It produces images of excellent quality and is extremely well built, but it also comes at a very high price tag. It seems like Olympus are concentrating on pushing their Micro Four Thirds cameras so who knows if this is the last Four Thirds camera from them..
