New 8MP Olympus DSLR with Anti-Dust Sys for under 1K..WITH LENS kit!?!
Scrap your current DSLRs!

I have to say that the $1k price is in US dollars, which would make it S$1.7-1.8k, similar to the Canon 300D with kit lens.

the landscape will be very different with this thrown into the current array of products but it might have come too late. Canon and Nikon has already cornered the "budget" DSLR market with the successful launch of 300D and D70 respectively.

This shouldnt come as a suprise.... Olympus already messed up the E-1, it was wayyy to expensive and got owned by the EOS 1D........
