Olympus E-620 First Impressions

2009 PMA Camera Reviews Featured News Olympus Uncategorized

New Olympus E-620 Digital SLR Olympus announced the 12-megapixel E-620 digital SLR this morning. The new E-620 is the second “Creative” digital SLR from Olympus. It’s sort of a combination of the E-520 and the E-30, with the E-520′s size and build and the some of the features and performance from the E-30, including a 12-megapixel sensor, Art Filters, Multi Exposure, improved auto focus and a 2.7-inch tilt-swivel LCD. I think the E-620 is the camera many Olympus photographers were hoping the E-30 would be – a compact, high-performance upgrade to the E-520 platform.

  • My next camera! It will go perfect with my E420. Thank you Olympus.

    I think the E-620 looks like the best backcountry camera yet. Although, I just got the Panasonic Lumix G1 in for review. We’ll see how it goes with that camera. No image stabilization is the main limitation with the G1. It is pretty tiny, though…

    I just puchased the E620 and I think it is a very good camera. It will take time for me to learn the ins and outs of it’s workings, but I think it will be fine. I purchased it with the kit lens and I am delighted with that also. The whole item balances very well.
