Summary: As a replacement for my very old, much lamented (and malfunctioning) Yashica SLR, it has returned me to the real camera world. I have confront the conflict between my Ludite side and the understanding that automatic functions exceed my expectations. It makes taking picture (almost) too easy. Soon everyone will be doing it. Nice camera. Great price.
Summary: Probably too soon to review, but I'm responding to an e-mail from Amazon to review my recent purchase. This is my fifth DSLR (Nikon D50, Olympus E-300, Samsung GX-1S, and Sigma SD14) and I have to say it has the best out-of-camera jpeg image quality of any camera I've owned to date.
Summary: I bought an E450 body from Cameta, as a replacement for an E410, which I accidentally damaged (the replacement body was cheaper than the price Olympus estimated for a repair). I thought I had no interest in the additional features. I don't use live view, so the improvement in focusing wasn't important and I certainly will never use the "art filters". However, the improved, clearer display of camera settings(f stops, shutter speed, ISO, etc.
Conclusion: Took this little camera out for a walk alongside with my trusted Sony R1. Comparing pictures side by side the E450 and the superb R1 are as sharp. I still need to learn to get the best setup on the E450 to get the best colors out, but for now I am very impressed by the little lens performance.

Summary: I bought this camera as my first step into the world of DSLR shooting. I love the small compact size and carried t around Paris for three days around my neck with no aching. Being female and only have little hands, the smaller buttons and layout doesn't really affect me however i can see how someone with bigger hands would struggle. The viewfinder is small and requires some practice for manual focus however the auto focus work great.
Olympus E-450 DIGITAL SLR CAMERA (14-42mm Lens Kit)
12 January 2011
Summary: This camera arrived well packaged and promptly. Delivery time was 4 working days in extreme weather conditions. The manual inside the box was printed only in French. However,this is not a problem! The PDF manual can be downloaded to your computer or e-reader free of charge- takes 15 seconds. The camera quality, look and function is remarkable much more than you would expect from this price range. Image quality ease of function and features most impressive.
Summary: .. und natürlich Spitzenbilder. Aber warum passt nur der MiniUSB von Olympus zum Überspielen. Warum? Kann man am Kabel mit Unikatstecker was verdienen? Trotzdem: vielseitig (habe noch nicht mal alles durchschaut), aber für mich, die früher nur mit Spiegelreflexkameras fotografiert hat, ist diese mit der hochwertigen Optik ung gutem Gehäuse unentbehrlich
