The E400 from Olympus is one of the world’s smallest and lightest D-SLR. The camera is exceptionally easy to use and its ultra-compact dimensions and low weight give the E400 users the freedom to take professional quality photographs whenever they wish.

Despite its modest proportions, the E400 is packed with 10.0 million pixels worth of image resolution and a massive list of other high tech features. As with other Olympus E-System cameras, the E400 is protected by a Supersonic Wave Filter. This unique Olympus technology prevents dust and dirt from sticking to the CCD and spoiling photos.

Note these have been superceded by the E410 which has a different brand CCD (same resolution). All reports seem to be pretty positive.

NB these have the cheaper 17.5-45 lens.

Any Olympus "fit" lens so Sigma etc are OK.

Yes, the E-400 uses a Kodak 10MP CCD whereas the E-410 uses a Panasonic 10MP CMOS sensor which gives the E-410 the facility for a live preview. There are also some other changes like the addition of mirror lockup although sadly they still haven't sorted out the d-pad on the back.

The E-400 is a four thirds camera which means currently it mainly uses Zuiko Digital (Olympus) and some Sigma lenses. There are a couple of Leicasonic lenses that will fit the camera but probably not suitable for many people considering the camera. It is a downside of the four thirds system currently that the lens choice is a lot more limited than Nikon/Canon plus the secondhand market is much smaller. You can use many legacy lenses but you have to manually focus and change the aperture.

What do you mean? Digital SLR bodies have a sensor the same as other digital camera, the main difference in an SLR is that you have a reflex mirror giviing an optical viewfinder which shows you a proper through the lens view. The sensor does tend to be much larger than most digital cameras although a non-SLR can have a large sensor.

The four thirds system has a smaller CCD than the APS-C sized units used in other consumer cameras and 10MP is a loot of pixels to cram on to it. This could cause image issues. A good alternative to the deal would be the Pentax K100D from Jessops at £299 in store or online (plus P&P). This comes with an 18-55 lens 6MP CCD and image stablization. It can also be used with just about any Pentax K mount lens even old manual focus ones. Naturally you will not get autofocus with these but you do get focus confirmation.
