I see, with all the freebies, perhaps you are right about the price.

Unfortunately for the rest of us, it's slow. Fortunately for people who are stepping into DSLR circle, there's 2 gigs which is sufficient even to play around with RAW if you shoot carefully, and not just machine gun away.

This package is good only for 1st timers buying into a dSLR system ;) . Not so good for those looking for body-alone option without all those "goodies" you already have :( .

-- "... *Can't read, but looks like 2 lens* ..."

If Oly is really giving away an additional 2 lens with (e330+kit lens), then people will rush for it. But do you really think so? :think:

went down to CP to enquire first about the bundle. asked for the normal retail that they are selling, the package only comes with 1x 1gb KS CF. sounds like no choice for me becos i dont really need the bundle in IT show. so when i wanted to get the normal retail, they told me was 1765 (incl GST). got a shock of my life when i heard that. told them wasnt it like $1680 w/gst, they said it is not.

tried calling MScolor but lady boss not in so i went to AP in funan and grab a set at $1680 (incl GST) with a 4gb extreme III. very heavy damage done today:cry: .

CP tried to pull a fast one on me! :angry:

------

the actual bundle in IT show is:

2 x 1 Gig CF card
Dry Cabinet
Extra battery
Tripod
1x Filter
26 in 1 Card reader
Lowepro bag
lowepro memory card wallet
Camera Care Kit

_____________

tried the camera..... initial impression:
1) lousy built body. definitely 1 to 2 grade lousier than e300 which feels very solid. built is almost similar to entry level DSLRs from other camps.
2) filmsy CF card door.
3) most advanced P&S i have tried. :bsmilie:
4) auto WB quite accurate.
5) RAW+SHQ @ 4 frames continuous.....even on the fastest card availlable. :sweat: haben try my 4gb kingston (45x) yet. need further testing on different sizes of images and type of card.

sounds like you not quite happy with your e-330, kind of a bad first impression ah? somehow, i think talking about body built really depends.. i feel that its built is solid, and i like the slightly heavier feel. and AutoWB is to most accurate so far among the e-systems. i've tested it against my e-500 before.

i went down today & saw Chii. John Araffin was the person demo-ing the E330. i got to play with it with the ZD150mm mounted, very evil, very difficult to rub it off my head now. touched a little on the ZD35-100mm Chii was using. fantastic lens!!:thumbsup: :devil: but its a tad too heavy for me.:bheart:

chainsmoker, u shud have go up & ask for a hands-on from John. get to shoot the model up close & personal. :bigeyes: :bsmilie:
