but there will be others. Availability seems to be late November, so don't expect any images for a while.

It seems a (limited) number of pre-productions are out there .. (Firmware version 0.9 according to Ian @ 4:3 user forum)

A Korean site already published some shots . Sorry, as I don't speak any Korean I have no clue about the comments made.

Going to be interesting to see who has been waiting for the E-3 as it maybe has not the highest pixel count in class but will it be the most versatile tool/system?
