Olympus E-1 Digital SLR

On June 24th, 2003 Olympus announced the introduction of the world's first digital interchangeable lens SLR system. Some may be asking, "So what is so important about that?". It is so important because nothing like this has been done before. Imagine the ability to exchange lenses to suit your specific photographic needs, all in digital format. The other reason this announcement is significant is the introduction of the 4/3 standard. The "4/3" refers to the CCD sensor and the lens mount. You can trace the history of the 4/3 system back to February 2001 and another announcement by Olympus and Kodak, jointly, to develop the digital camera technology. The definition of the standard mean that you should be able to use any 4/3 lens on any 4/3 camera, whether it's from Olympus or any other manufacturer.

Sweet, it's about time somebody came up with a standard. I just (a week ago) purchased the Minolta Diamage S414 from Amazon.com for under $300 and although I got a good deal, it looks like it will be obsolete soon with the release of a digital SLR standard... They will sure be sweet when they become affordable!
