The Olympus E-420 DSLRâ€™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.
Itâ€™s a full-featured digital SLR, with a Live View that features Contrast Detect Autofocus not found in other amateur DSLRs. You also get â€œbracketing, 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,â€ says DPReview.com reviewer Lars Rehm.
But its image quality â€œvery slightly tarnishesâ€ the E-420â€™s positive overall rating. â€œThe 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,â€ said Lars.
