Why Olympus DSLRs not popular?
Jun 9, 2009

Seems like everyone's first choice is Canon or Nikon. I go to Flickr and see very few images taken with Olympus DSLR cameras compared to Canon. I am a bit surprised by this.

I have owned several Canon point and shoot digicams, as well as the Olympus C-8080. From my experience with these cameras Olympus can keep up in the image department producing exceptionally good real colors. I would say I like the C8080 colors better than my other Canon p&s.

I am particularly interested in getting a digital SLR in the near future. I like one that's preferably small and lightweight. The E420 really looks like a great camera from all the reviews I read. However, I seem to find very few images of it on Flickr or Pbase. Why so few people using it when it looks to be a really great camera. From the pictures I've seen taken with it, it rivals the entry Canons and Nikons.
