|The E-620 comes with free angle live view in a small and light body. With the art filter and multiple exposure functionality, it is sure to expand your world of expressions. In addition, the image stabilization built into the E-620 means that image stabilization is available with all FourThirds lenses you may decide to use. Combined with the standard class lenses with light weight and high cost performance, image stabilization is always available throughout an approximate 33x zoom range from 18mm ultra wide angle to 600mm zoom, relative to 35mm film format, for everyone.|

High-quality photos; solid performance; articulated LCD; some nice features, including savable custom settings, in-body image stabilization, Art Filters, and a wireless flash controller.
No video capture; more complex to operate than is necessary.
While it's a solid budget dSLR with good photo quality and a host of advanced features, the Olympus E-620 still falls behind the competition on most counts.

I am upgrading from the Olympus E-500 (8mp) to this Olympus E-620 (12mp). What a great upgrade. I stayed with Olympus because all of my (expensive) accessories would be too expensive to replace and I was familiar with the functionality. This was like going from a V6 to a V8 car. The camera is fast, functionality is consistent, the focusing upgrades are much improved. I did have to purchase new backup batteries however, they were relatively inexpensive. The camera actually seems lighter than the e-500 and the battery life is great.
One of the bads: I have to update my photoshop program from CS3 to handle the RAW files - but that has nothing to do with the camera.
check out this link for my photo library. The netherlands set are with the E620 - http://www.flickr.com/photos/labeyta. The increase in pixel density is a huge plus.
Maybe someday i will go from my v8 (E-620) to a v12 (E-5) but for now (and the price), I am quite happy.
Very nice well made sturdy unit,go to a store and handle like cameras from the other big guys you will see-they fell cheaper and more plasticity,and they cost much more!! Kit lenes are good will get you started-but you will want the better lenses soon. Now its not a beginners camera,probably should have some SLR experience I come from point and shoot and much to learn about the E620 Buttons and settings galore-takes time to master.(still working on that). Maybe you could buy a better camera but not in this price range..so I guess you can call me satisfied Oh by the way it takes great photos once you learn it a bit. sd7749724
I bought this Olympus E-620 to replace my E-510. Although there are some new features, and a 12 mp vs a 10 mp, I'm not sure there's that much of a kick-up. It appears to me the E-510 has a little better build quality. The movable LCD on the E-620 is fine for those who use an LCD to provide framing and focus but I prefer the viewfinder, such as on my D90. Olympus has been a little pricey and the lens prices are way above the general Nikon/Canon array. Olympus does have quality glass and that's been true for a long time.
