Olympus E-620 (EVOLT E-620) Review

Announced Feb 24, 2009 •
12 megapixels | 2.7 screen | Four Thirds sensor
dpreview conclusion

The best Four Thirds camera yet closes the gap and competes convincingly with its APS-C competitors. More importantly though, it's small, produces excellent 'out of the box' image quality and is jam-packed with useful--and a few novel--features. If you can live without movies, it's an easy pick.

Not so good for

Low light, indoor or action/sports/wildlife photography

Olympus E-620 (EVOLT E-620) review

The Olympus E-620 is a feature-packed DSLR which offers a step-up from entry-level models.
