No word yet on the replacement for the E3 from them, though I'm hopeful to hear something before the Olympics in 2010. Pentax has announced a new medium format camera that should sell for less than $10,000 and will support their lens lineup made for the film MF 645 camera. This is pretty exciting. While $10,000 is a lot of money, it is far cheaper than the Leica, Hasselblad and Mamiya MF cameras (about a third of the cost). I'd love to own one someday.
Olympus put an E3 on the space shuttle. It should be up there right now taking photos. Pretty cool.
I saw a guy shooting my hockey game last night with an entry level Nikon dslr. He was obviously struggling and I noticed Adam chatting with him. I think Adam helped him out with his black images. It amazes me that people go out and buy a base Nikon or Canon with the kit lens and assume they can shoot anything. It's all marketing, but this poor guy was trying f5.6 at ISO 100 in a dark hockey rink. Good luck. I blame it on camera salespeople. "Yeah, this camera is great....you will be shooting like a pro in no time." Uh huh. It is, in my opinion, all in the lenses. Invest there first and the camera body can be changed time and time again around a great set of lenses.
Finally our website is still down (grrrrr) but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will be back up tonight and Adam has revamped it, so I think it will be a huge improvement.
