As a follow-up to the E-300, the Olympus EVOLT E-330 is a successful improvement with excellent image quality up to ISO 400, with ISO 800 usable. It also handles and operates better and provides lots of customizable settings.

The Olympus 14-45mm f/3.5-5.6 Zuiko Digital Lens captures extremely sharp and detailed images and can be purchased as a kit with the Olympus E-330. You can also purchase any of the lenses specially designed for the Four Thirds Standard by any vendor (other than Olympus, there's currently Sigma and Leica).

By providing the first ever Live View LCD on a DSLR and tons of easy-to-use Scene Modes, the Olympus E-330 seems to be targeting the amateur photographers who want to make the jump from consumer P&S digicams to a DSLR but are not quite sure they want to leave behind all the good stuff they are used to.

The Live View LCD is tiltatble and provides a flexibility in composing currently not available in any other DSLR (except its cousins: the Panasonic L1 and Leica Digilux 3). The Olympus EVOLT E-330 also has an effective Dust Reduction System, dual media support (xD-Picture Card and CompactFlash / Microdrive), and full exposure flexibility.
