Old model (now E450) but still great price. HOT
Just ordered mine.
Many thanks

If a new model's come out it might be worth checking to see what PC World are selling them for - I bought my E410 from them when the E420 came out and they were practically giving them away! £170 with the 14-42 and the 40-150 lenses. Good camera too!

i got 1 last time(about a month ago) and love it

PC world don't tend to stock Olympus any more only in large stores


I have had this camera for a while and it is great

heat added for a very good image quality for a price of the compact camera...Good deal as a first DSLR.:)

i am selling my canon 5d mk2, wondering what to get some thing under £500, might just get one of these and than get the 5dmk3 later or get a canon so i gould use all my stuff,, decisions!!

found the e450 for £230 on ebay so this deal is not so hot

How does this compare with Nikon D60 (for £273.99) from Argos (posted in Hotukdeals)?
Any pro, pls enlighten the dummies like us?

i'd be interested to know this too

there is very little difference between the two.....

photographyblog.com/rev…on/

and then there is the question of the guarantee, which you'll get as normal with the argos/e420 and delivery (£10 ebay if it is same seller i saw)

makes it even hotter in comparison to the e450 imop

Worth reading the review of both Nikon D60 and this Olympus E420 on the following link:-

photographyblog.com/rev…on/

This is what they said towards the end:-

We've never awarded a category tie in a Head to Head comparison, but the D60 and the E-420 came as close to earning one as any two models we've ever side-by-sided. These cameras have specs that nearly mirror one another save one key advantage for each particular model. As good as Olympus's live view system is, it's certainly not flawless, and the opinions among our review staff about whether the technology was refined enough to qualify it as a serious tool rather than a marketing gimmick remain mixed. By contrast, offering VR in what was already a very good kit lens from an optical standpoint provides the D60 kit with a crucial low-light shooting advantage, especially, over it's already somewhat high-sensitivity hobbled rival from Olympus.

Hence, I'm giving this one to Nikon by the slimmest of possible margins, though if you're seeking a compact DSLR and live view is a key consideration for you, much of the foregoing reasoning may not apply. With that caveat in mind...

I have a Panasonic TZ7 at the moment but would like to take the step up to a DSLRs at some point. Would there be a significant jump in quality from the TZ7 to one of these? Would I need to spend more than this much to notice much of a difference? The TZ7 is ok if there enough light, but is quite poor in low light condition IMO.

Great camera for entry level..bargain

One of the main differences between these two for me was the Olympus uses the defunct card but the Nikon uses the SD card.

Plenty of cards around but I prefer not to take that chance.

The Olympus takes both and Compact Flash cards. Not as convenient as SD, agreed, but better than being restricted to only.

You will notice more difference in low light conditions. Also remember that kit lenses don't have much zoom range and can be relatively poor quality. Some are better than others though.

None left in stock now.
