Hi guys, I think we have a great Olympus community here, but please do try and bring in new Olympus owners if you know any who'd like it here!
PS - donalone, I'm sorry you're finding the forum interface horrible! There's not a great deal I can do about it though, as it uses off-the-shelf phpbb software. All forums which use phpbb look and work like this...
I was actually saying that CameraLabs' interface is much better than the "dark site" (DPR). No worry about the website interface for CameraLabs.
Yes, there are not many Olympus people here. I always recommend people I meet in Flickr to check out CameraLabs.com. I found this place because I was attracted to your reviews about 450D and E520 when I was looking for my first dSLR. Unfortunately there is no new reviews for Olympus new dSLRs although Olympus has launched or announced 3 new dSLRs this year.
If I am a new buyer for Olympus I will be disappointed to see there's no new reviews for E30 and E620. At least for E620 since it is so important for Olympus this year as a feature-packed entry-level dSLR.
We all know that Gordon is very busy with reviews. I love this website and check out the forum everyday. Hope my suggestions will hlep.
Cameralabs is definitely a great resource for us. I also post on the photographyreview.com Olympus forums [http://forums.photographyreview.com/forumdisplay.php?f=56] but I prefer Cameralabs. However those forums have also been really great IMO, and one of the writers on their seems to prefer Olympus, so thats a plus for 4/3 users. They have an awful site interface though. I think I prefer those other guys' interface to PR.com! Cameralabs still is the tops when it comes to well put together information. Good work Gordon!
