LOL! Yes, we know Atomic likes the E-3 better!
FYI, here's a link to some noise comparison testing between the E-3 and E-30. The noise does seem higher on the E-30.
I'm actually thinking about the same question too of E-620 v. E-30. As well as several other ones related to more lenses to buy! I really shouldn't be buying anything else, but I really want to have a camera with a swivel LCD, which is great for low angle shots and self-portraits.
Regarding the E-30, the top LCD doesn't do anything for me. But the larger viewfinder and the extra stop of image stabilization (as claimed) certainly do.
I like the E-620 for its price (about $300 cheaper in the US) and size, but I am a bit concerned about weight balance for larger lenses. When I use the 14-54 in my E-410, it just feels way off. The LCD is supposedly a bit better on the E-620, so that would be nice because I like to use the LCD for macro shots.
Oh well ... at the end of the day, I'll probably refrain from buying either one for at least a few more months. I know my skills have certainly not outgrown any of the cameras I have right now! I'll probably end up using that $$ to buy more lenses.
Let us know what you end up getting so that we can all experience the joys of getting a new Oly through you!
