E-420 specifications for all internal workings except viewfinder and exposure metering.

Fujifilm has contributed to the low noise characteristics at high ISO in the revised sensors.

Optical Zoom Viewfinder framing for 9-135mm with parallax correction. Not used for focusing as in rangefinder.

AF System 1. Reflector arm from E-300 used to divert light to E-420’s AF sensor.

AF System 2. Contrast detect at image sensor as in E-420.

AF confirmation for manual focusing.

Exposure Metering: combination of reading at AF sensors and OM-4 style OTF reading off shutter.

New LCD Info Panel: Continuously shows most important functions. Illumination turned on, when ambient light is low, by pressing any of the 4 buttons for changing settings.

New Lens Mount: shorter flange to image distance allows for Leica M or Contax G sized lenses. Electronic contacts compatible with Fourthirds when used with the supplied adapter.

Fully compatible with FL series flash units.

OLYMPUS PEN D-2
Price: $699 with kit lens. Body only $599.

Same as PEN D-1, but the optical viewfinder and AF System 1 eliminated. The rear LCD folds out as in E-330. This compact model fits in coat pockets.

Have fun,
