A Great tool
4

After a long debate, Olympus was leaving the fourthirds platform in favor of the micro-fourthirds platform at that time, i bought the E-620 in 2010.

I think it's a fine camera with at that time groundbreaking technology like the sensor cleaner, build in stabilisation, articulated screen, build in filters, buttons that light up, micro AF-adjustment, good DR, multiple exposure even after taken the pictures within the camera, Pixelmapping etc. build in a compact design.

I've used it to photograph sports, landscapes, portraits, macro and children. The AF is the weakest point of this camera and the noise reduction could be better but luckily the post processing software has become better in the mean time. I always shoot jpeg and RAW. For sports (inline and speedskating) i sometimes have to work around the AF (prefocus manually and wait for the moment) but it works most of the time. For all the other purposes the camera behaves great. I love the feeling of the build quality and hope to use this camera for a very long time.
