Just picked up a new E-420!!
Mar 19, 2010

Sorry, not much of a post here other to say you Olympus users have had a great little secret on your hands! I have always been a Nikon or Canon user. My main camera is a Canon 5D. I like to have a small camera for the times when it's just not in the cards to lug the big gear around. I have tried a number of point & shoot cameras (even high end ones like the Canon G11). None of them were good enough for me considering the price tag. I don't expect a small camera to match my full-frame body. However, I have never found a point & shoot that is any good at more than the base ISO. So, the other day I am in Wal-Mart and what do I see? A brand new (not a floor demo) E-420 kit with the 14-42mm lens on clearance for $299! I grabbed it right away! There was no hesitiation since they only had one left and at that price, well, how can you go wrong? So now I have been playing with it for a couple of days and all I can say is WOW! No, I am not going to claim it's as good as my 5D. However, it blows away any point & shoot I have ever used and it's not much bigger. This will be very easy to keep with me most of the time. Seems well built and has great features for such a small camera. So, I just wanted to say hi to the Olympus users out there and you will probably have me picking your brains for some tips on using this little gem!
