Olympus Evolt E420 10MP Digital SLR Camera (Body Only)

  • So I was deciding between this, the E510/520, Canon\'s line, and Sony\'s. The thing about Canon is it\'s more expensive, even while you get better quality photos. Also, you miss out on the bells and whistles this camera\'s got, with live view, dust reduction, better kit lens, etc. Sony would have been what I\'d gone with, had size not been an issue. For some people, there won\'t be much of an issue with size, but since I preferred a small camera, the difference was massive; Sony\'s lines are great, but only because they make their cameras quite a bit large that Olympus\'s. Also, the E420 has a nice improvement in terms of image quality and noise over the old E410, (which I wouldn\'t have bought. Image quality was just too poor on that old model) and the E510, and to be honest, the difference between it and Sony becomes negligible in everyday outdoor use and party/occasional indoor use upon close-up inspection. For prints and smaller images, there is no difference in noise, and you can easily compensate for the occasional over/under exposure. Really, for me, I was looking for a camera that could take good pictures, be handy, and come with some nice extras. Olympus met all those brilliantly, as did Sony did minus the \'handy\' part. If you\'re worried about quality, don\'t worry unless blown-up images are your main concern. Then you might even want to invest more than the E420\'s price range and get yourself a slightly more expensive SLR altogether. Oh, and I would have loved the E520 (which is not much bigger, all said and done), but it wasn\'t coming out on time. IS (Image Stabilization) is real handy for night and low-light indoor shots, and if you\'re in need of a camera for that, go ahead and get the E520, it just wasn\'t available when I bought the E420. Good buy so far, nice bang/buck!
  • I\'ve had this camera for a couple of months now and I am nothing short of satisfied with this camera\'s look, feel, size and quality. For starters, this camera is really small! I always knew that it was touted as the world\'s smallest, but it really is that tiny! If used along with the pancake lens, this camera can be carried around all day in your jacket/coat pocket and will make an excellent tool for street photography. I also own an E-510 and other than the missing IS, I would say this camera has improved a lot over the E-x10 series.For starters, the JPEG engine and the new sensor are a noticeable improvement and this shows in the image quality. The camera also has a much better dynamic range and doesn\'t clip highlights like the E-510, which makes it very easy to use. The auto WB isn\'t as accurate as the E-510 though and it does have a tendency to make colors a little warmer, but this still looks really nice and isn\'t really a problem.Noise is also very well controlled and even at ISO 1600, the noise is very fine grained and not intrusive as such.In response to the other poster, the AF speed on this camera is plenty fast and extremely accurate and doesn\'t lack anywhere. The live view with face detection is an excellent feature when clicking group pictures or handing the camera to someone else to take pictures. Contrast-detect AF is slightly slow, but works as intended and is also quite accurate (not as accurate as TTL phase detect AF).Overall, for the price, this is an excellent package and great value for money. This camera is also the ideal camera if you want something you can carry around everywhere without compromising on image quality. I highly recommend this camera.
  • I chose the E-420 over similar offerings from Canon and Nikon because this camera just felt better in my hands. Small, light weight, no big old grip on the right side of the camera. All these reasons are really personal preferences as you really have to get technical to see the differences in image quality; which there are. But if you are like me, shoot a lot of images, print a few 4 X 6s and fewer 8 X 10s, store your pictures on your computer and email pictures to family and friends now and then, the E-420 will serve you well. Do I need to tell you that you should purchase from I didn\'t think so.Sept 1, 2009 updateShot a lady\'s tennis tournament today and the E-420 with 40 to 150 mm lens performed very well. Out of over 300 shots, only 4 were out of focus. The 4 bad shots were the first images in continuous shot sequences. Once I figured this out and pre focused prior to shooting, the problem went away. Just used the sport mode and let the camera figure out the settings.
  • I have fallen in love with the Olympus E-420 and the two prime lenses, the 25mm pancake and the 50mm f2.0. After many years of photography, going all the way back to the sixties, my nostalgia for certain elements of the old ways has been satisfied by this camera. The compact size, the light weight, the prime lenses, the high quality and the ability to shoot with the feeling that the camera and I are one -- all are quite wonderful. The pancake lens is so comfortable and convenient, I am quite willing to overcome its lack of perfection -- it\'s more than good enough. And the 50mm is for me the sharpest lens, with some of the most beautiful images that I have had in many years Olympus Evolt E420 10MP Digital SLR Camera with 25mm f/2.8 Pancake Zuiko Lens . And, peculiarly, I am thrilled that this camera focuses so dependably. I\'ve used lots of Nikons and Canons. In recent years, I\'ve suffered a lot from erratic focusing, mostly with the Canon DSLRs. The confidence I feel with the e-420 makes shooting a real pleasure.
