And here we are, in the final stretch before the official Olympus E3 revelation (or before a leak becomes a lake). We will be periodically posting updates on the Olympus E3. To make it easier for people who may be refreshing this page at a maddening pace, we will be posting the updates in reverse chronological order (newer updates first). Since this blog is read around the world, I will be posting the time with New York City as the reference point. To calculate the time in your time zone, check the world clock at the TimeAndDate.com
The Olympus E3 is now officially announced. We continue our coverage with the official announcement post.
