Re: ordered an e 620 from amazon

I think the E620 would work well for you. You will have the equivalent of 28 - 300mm as compared to your A200 so should cover your range well. I think you will find the kit lenses sharper than the A200 and should be much less CA to deal with in PP.

The E620 will be a lot faster reacting and the tilt-swivel display will make it easier to compose your panos on the tripod. The Oly has a pano function but only works with the Oly XD cards unfortunately. The XD is a lot slower than the Compact Flash though. You can still manually overlap the images and use 3rd party stitching software though. That is probably better anyway and some even have stitching that allows both vertical and horiz combinations to build big images.

In Oregon you don't need to carry a gray card, you can just point your camera at the sky.
