i've been using this camera for a thirty day period and have grown to like it a growing number of. I have been using a canon 20D and still have found it heavy, cumbersome and I happen to be having great difficulty getting sharp pictures. The e-620 is a opposite. Small, light, and sharp pictures even at relatively slow speeds (thanks into the built in Image Stabilisation - it works! ). I appreciate some people like heavy cameras as well as some don't. If you don't, then get this specific camera. You'll love it too. The two kit lenses are usually the best kit lenses you'll likely come across and together they cover the 35mm the same of 28mm - 300mm. This camera is as user friendly as anyone could wish and as intricate and comprehensive as your photographer's heart may desire. The swivel live view is GREAT. Can't be all good? Well I think not, but the only slight negative, determined by your photo requirements, is noise at bigger speeds. 800 iso and above noise turns into more intrusive. Below this it's not issues. For most people this will not be a problem and I believe this can be a small price to pay for all the advantages of which there are a huge amount. i can gush on and on but I guess by now you might realise I LOVE IT!
