The camera is easy to use. It is very well specified, included is live view, optical DoF preview, shadow control technology and “SSWF” sensor cleaning. The “super rear viewing” display allows easy access to most camera settings. Some controls are buried in the over complex menu such as the image size and quality control settings which can involve visiting up to three “program control” points! During my initial use of the E-420, at very high quality settings, some images did show “ghosting”. ...

This was my first DSLR so this review should be taken with a grain of salt, but nonetheless I have done my research and I know what I am talking about. The camera is amazingly small and portable, and even with the lens is quite light. The 14-42mm kit lens is very good, and the 40-150mm telephoto is equally high-performance. At wide angle there are very slight aberrations in the corners, but still better than the competition. The settings are very numerous and very well laid out, with the ...

I have this camera for almost 2 years now. It does what you expect to do. I like it very much. Easy, versatile and great value. Problems: No problem so far.

I've owned lots of OM1,2 and 4's. My first digital camera was the e500 which I've used for more than three years. I was happy with the results - workng around the limitations. I've used my e420 for about two months now and it has the same exciting feel that made me choose the OM system back in the 70's. I'm tempted to go with the e620 because of the impressive results that have been reported. However, I think I'll stick with the e420 until Olympus release a new box. Problems: I can live with ...

Very interesting double lens kit : Very good range and image quality for the price. Good alternative to premium compact and good choice as first SRL. Very efficient super menu system (not so for the standard menu system). Live view auto focus much more useful than expected. Optical viewfinder very correct even if not the best (I like the info on the right side). Good body shape so lack of stabilization not so missing. Problems: AF assist with flash is not very efficient and unpleasant (better ...

Solid little DSLR - Highly Recommended I have owned a Minolta 800si (film 35mm), Mamiya c330f TLR and nikon coolpix 995 - the olympus e420 is my entry into the dSLR world... Image quality > I have read a few reviews complaining that the AA filter is too heavy and images are soft. Admittedly I do not have a lot of experience with dSLRs, coming from the world of film and being out of photography for a while. But I have done some A4 prints on a EPSON R270 photo printer (premium semigloss paper) ...

In addition to the Canon cameras, about which I left some opinions for the 40D, I also own the Olympus E-420 and E-520. Since they became relatively inexpensive I had decided to enter the 4/3 world. The picture quality of the two models is very comperable and actually preferable to the Canon 400D. The high ISO images are more like those of Nikon- more grainy and less chrome noise. For A4 size prints it is very, very difficult to tell any difference in all cases. I don't want to get into the ...
