The first completely, 100% unqualified Highly Recommended from DPReview of an Olympus consumer-level DSLR, and it looks like it deserves it, too. And it has it's own, Olympus-made accessory grip.

Their copy never quite tipped the 4 frames per second rate claim Olympus makes. That's about all I could see that might be slightly disappointing regarding their findings.

I would think the next big breakthrough on the DSLR side is going to be implementing the weaker AA filter used on the E-P1, which if they do, would raise the resolution numbers even higher.

I agree the review looks very good. IMO, the two areas they need to address are:
1. Viewfinder
2. AA Filter

Some people may not notice or mind a small viewfinder, but for others it's an issue. Would a little more size be that detrimental in order to get a larger viewfinder?

All in all, looks like their DSLRs are catching up to their lenses. Good news for Oly buyers.

Default A larger viewfinder is an issue for some.

The size of the viewfinder was an issue for me. That was one reason I chose the E-30 as I wear glasses and I wanted as large an OPV as I could get. The larger body, faster frame rate and 11 point sensor just made the decision to spend a bit more money, easier.
