Summary: If you like Olympus, this is a great deal. Just check out the review on the E-620 […] Just as a note. * You get access to all 6 art filters in (Olympus master 2 software) if you use RAW. * You can overlay RAW images in camera. A double exposure * The back light buttons of the E-620 is a great idea, but it does use extra battery power. No need to spend extra money for a E-620. This is a great value. The kit glass is cheap but takes OK photos.
Summary: I've purchased E-600 on Adorama, through Amazon. Though it's refurbished, it really looks like new (and acts like new!). The only difference I've noticed is different package which has "reconditioned" tag. Overall, camera is very brisk, responsive, even in live view mode. Noise is of course an issue but that's not surprising 'cause E-600 has 4/3 sensor. I'd also like to mention that both lenses have their own caps and HOODS AS WELL.
Olympus-E600 is a stripped down version for the E600

Summary: This is a great camera for someone starting DSLR photography. Its the 4/3 format and hence expect noise in low light conditions. But some of the colors this thing can produce is insane. Also the kit lenses with this rig is by far the best kit lenses I have come across. Great optics there. At $450 for the body and two lenses, this is the best bargain in terms of bang for your buck. Potentially it can yield some great result!
Summary: I bought this because I have been an Olympus camera fan for over 20 years. I began with a 35mm film SLR - It was the best camera I have ever used, until now. This camera (E600) has a lot of features, which are pretty standard for a DSLR in this price range; being used to a totally manual film camera, I was a bit intimidated at first, but after a half day of shooting, I figured out a lot without any trouble at all The E600 is excellent - I have not a single negative...
Conclusion: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
