Great Camera

Novara, Amazon

  • Summary: I owned an E-510 and this camera is every bit as good at the E-510 in a smaller package. It takes amazing photos and the bayonet style lens mount is fantastic. Excellent DSLR camera...I highly recommend this camera if you are on a budget and want a camera comparable to the higher priced Nikon or Cannon models.

Enjoying it with old zuiko lenses

  • Summary: I bought the body only and a cheap adapter (from amazon) and use it with a collection of old zuiko lenses that I have for my manual olympus cameras (from the 70s). None of the auto settings work (and the ap and ss settings seem to be backwards) but after a few days of experimenting, I got used to it and now (2 years later) still love using it to take beautiful digital pictures.

  • Summary: These are discontinued, so if you can get a used or refurbished one for under $200, go for it. Lightweight, well-built, dependable.

User Review

RobbGee, DP Review

  • Excerpt: The camera is easy to use. It is very well specified, included is live view, optical DoF preview, shadow control technology and “SSWF” sensor cleaning. The “super rear viewing” display allows easy access to most camera settings. Some controls are buried in the over complex menu such as the image size and quality control settings which can involve visiting up to three “program control” points!

Very good camera

  • Summary: it just takes a bit of learning, since it has a lot of flexibility in adjusting all the settings, but it was expected from an SLR camera.

  • Summary: Wow! This is actually a great camera to have on you...you know, when you don't want to lug all your camera equipment around or you're in the market for the camera every photographer keeps on them at all times cause you never know when a great shot will present itself. It really is a great go to camera for advanced amateurs or beginners, but I recommend you look to Walmart or other retail entity who buys in bulk, because this camera was on clearance for $199.99 and...

Wrong camera, but I still like it.

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: When I bought this camera I was expecting to receive the E420, however I was sent the E410. So, I can't give a 100% accurate review of the E420 since I didn't get what I bought. However, since they are both basically the same camera I can say that based on my experience with the E410 it's a very nice camera.
