Summary: Conclusion: The E-600 provides nearly identical features as the E-620, minus infrared remote support, some art filters, backlit buttons, multi-exposure and aspect ratio, but with a noticeably cheaper price, although unfortunately less availability. Overall the E-600 is an impressive photographic tool with a wallet-friendly price, and is an enjoyable camera to use, producing excellent photos, with bright punchy colours, and excellent JPEG results straight from the camera.
Pros: What I Don’t like:, - Lacks focus assist lamp / LED (uses strobe flash instead), - XD card slot, a better combination would be CF and SD
Cons: View our Olympus E-600 DSLR Sample Photo Gallery, ., A second Olympus E-600 gallery can be viewed from, Photokina 2010, .
Summary: Available exclusively through the Dixons group, the 12.3Mp Olympus E-600 is a rebadged, pared-down and better-value version of the E-620. Both are aimed at photographers wanting a light and portable digital SLR camera.
Excerpt: The obvious markets for the more-compact-than-usual Four Thirds E-600 digital SLR from Olympus are the photo enthusiast, the creative of mind and those upgrading from either a starter DSLR, bridge camera or snapshot… that's basically those of us wanting regular DSLR quality, without the bulk of a camera based on an existing 35mmm SLR body sporting a APS-C sized sensor.
Conclusion: At the time of writing Curry's online store was offering the E-600 and lens at a knock-down price of just £399, a saving of £150 on the full £549 recommended cost. If the offer still holds by the time you read this, you're basically getting a mid range model at an entry-level price: a great deal.
Pros: Comprehensive feature set, yet easy to use, solid feel build, Live View with dedicated button for one-touch activation, tilting LCD screen is a further boon to creative compositions
Cons: Some compromises have been made to ensure smaller form factor, such as the fact the E-600 lacks a truly comfortable and firm handgrip, other than that, there's not much to complain about here
