    E3 Advice

    I've convinced myself that I could really use a bomb-proof, weather-proof camera. So, I just bought one of the seemingly endless supply of "factory demo" E3's from Cameta Camera's eBay listings. I also ordered a 70-300 and a 14-54 lens. The total for everything is less than a decent Nikon zoom .

    I'm looking for advice that can help shorten the learning curve, if there is one, for the E3:

    - Recommended in-camera settings?
    - Post processing in Aperture -- any changes to the raw processing, sharpening preferences, etc?
    - any other quirks or things to be aware of with the E3?

    I'll be using it mainly for sports and urban/architectural photos, not so much for landscapes or portraits.


    Thanks for the help!

    Aperture ?? Dont know anything about it. I am a Windows User...
    Quirks ?? Keep away from Zuiko 7 -14, dont look after Zuiko Makro 50, never touch 50-200 SWD and no quick look after Zuiko 150 F2 or that damned 14-35 F2

    Klaus,

    Thanks for the help.

    I'll probably stay away from the 12-60 as well. For at least a week or so...

    Look at the firmware and update it for if you have legacy lenses it is great to adjust IS for those lenses.
    Press IS and the +/- knob on top and set it to right mm. with the front wheel.
    I used Wriotnak also, very good info.
    Have fun and the camera is build like a tank.
    Regards, Michiel
