Olympus E-620

Digital Photography Review have published an in-depth review of Olympus' latest Four Thirds format camera.

Some excerpts from the conclusions follow:

"The Four Thirds range has tended to lag a fraction behind the best contemporary APS-C sensor-size DSLRs in terms of absolute performance... this isn't the case with the E-620 - however you look at it, it's up there with the best of them. Built-in Image Stabilization gives it an edge over its rivals if you're buying additional lenses."

"...the E-620 is a well thought-out and laid-out camera that sits comfortably in the hand. The interface has also been well designed..."

"The E-620 is pretty small in DSLR terms, but... it's not tiny."

"...its ability to deliver great images, straight out of the camera hits the spot precisely... from an aesthetic point-of-view, the output is all that you'd want from a camera at this level - bright, punchy and consistent."
