DPReview.com on Olympus E-420: Highly Recommended (Just!)

Olympus E-420 DSLR with Zuiko Digital 25mm F2.8 pancake lens

The Olympus E-420 DSLR’s strongest point is its diminutive size, pocketable and ready to go anywhere especially when paired with the Zuiko Digital 25mm F2.8 pancake lens.

It’s a full-featured digital SLR, with a Live View that features Contrast Detect Autofocus not found in other amateur DSLRs. You also get “bracketing, customizable mirror lock-up, wireless flash control, a dust reduction system, control over high ISO noise reduction and a highly customizable user interface – an awful lot of camera for your money,” says DPReview.com reviewer Lars Rehm.

But its image quality “very slightly tarnishes” the E-420’s positive overall rating. “The camera’s output is not bad at all (in fact contrast and colors in the default settings are very appealing), but it’s not quite up at the same level as some of the competitors,” said Lars.
