From the preview at Imagine resource was this little tidbit:

Sensor. Though it's still a 10-megapixel sensor, Olympus says that the E-3 uses a newly developed Live MOS sensor. The two major changes include less space between the microlens array and the light sensitive area, and a faster readout speed to help enable five-frame-per-second shooting.

http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/E3/E3A.HTM

Now the question is, is this new sensor the same as the DMC L10's, LiveMOS or something completely different from Pana for the E3. Also looking at the ISO, its stating native ISO3200 - no boost, although I'm not sure if the E510 was able to do ISO3200.

Cheers

One thing it definitely does is put a serious"overpriced" look on the L10 ifthe number of $1,200 or so I sawwith the Kit lens is nearright for the L10 vs. around $1,700 (both prices in USD)for the E3....that's a no-brainer...I'd get the E3.

might look a bit better if L10 is body only
but i agree, i know what i would rather.... E3

pitty they dropped the speed dial of L10, that would make it harder for me
