Olympus E-620 Digital SLR

 

Olympus has long been slated for having too few DSLRs in its range, now it's added two new models in a short space of time.

Olympus E-620 review

 

The E-620 is the smallest mid-range DSLR on the market. Does it have what it takes to snag the serious photographer?

A solidly built, compact and deceptively powerful mid-range DSLR. Video would have made it a killer

Olympus E-620 DSLR camera

 

The E-620 is the latest addition to Olympus' E-series of DSLRs and sits above the (bulkier) E-520 and below the recent E-30, with which it shares many features, including the 12.3MP Live-MOS sensor. The E-620 is a little like the Tardis; on the outside...

Great image quality, good handling, Super Control Panel, comprehensive and creative feature set, customisability, good dust reduction system

Small viewfinder is slightly blurry, many complex features means complexity of set up (AF adjustment for example)

The E-620 is a little like the Tardis; on the outside you see a relatively small, entry level DSLR, while on the inside, you find the specification and features of much bigger enthusiast or semi-pro model. Picture quality is great too and it’s nice to...

Olympus E-620 review

 

The highly desirable new DSLR from Olympus is a compact marvel, and suitable for all skill levels

Feature rich ; Good for beginners too ; Great AF in Live View ; Versatile LCD screen

Noisy ; ISO 400 is the max ; ISO 3200 is awful ; AF not quick enough

Some interesting features, but image quality is a little disappointing at this price.

Olympus E-620 review

 

Creatives who want to make the move from a compact camera to a digital SLR but are worried about the learning curve and the bulkier size of SLRs should check out the 12.3-megapixel Olympus E-620. It has been designed to be easy to use and it features a...

Between the excellent Live View mode, pop-out LCD screen and the art modes, the Olympus E-620 is a lot of fun to use. We recommend it if you want a compact digital SLR that’s not hard to use and which doesn’t compromise on advanced features. It will...

Olympus E-620

 

This lightweight 4/3 DSLR camera, features enough technologies to satisfy all novice photographers. Beyond the 3200 ISO sensitivity of its Live MOS 12.3 MP sensor, we welcome its autofocus system with 7 points, several artistic filters and the...

Olympus E-620 Review / Test Report

 

compact and light-weight, efficient in-body image stabilizer, good phase-detection AF, immense feature set

mediocre RAW potential due to strong AA filter, questionable positioning of the control dial, slow contrast detection AF

The Olympus E-620 is a vast improvement over the existing consumer grade E-series DSLRs. The new viewfinder has received a major revision - while not as good as the ones used in the E-30/E-3 it's bigger and better than the "tunnel view" that we've seen...

While shooting for this test, I found myself trudging through a field, humming a merry tune, and absent-mindedly tossing the E-620 from one hand to another. Being a responsible camera reviewer, I stopped as soon as I realised what I was doing and put...
