I just sold my Nikon D50 and i want to buy a completely different DSLR.

Should i buy an Olympus E-400 ?

I like it`s compact size but i had a few questions :

Does anyone have some pics made with this camera , i don`t seem to find any anywere.

How good is the B&W feature with it`s filter settings . i would love to see a few examples of B&W pics straight out of the camera?

Will the noise level be higher then the Nikkon D50 ?

why not hang around for a bit and get an E-410 or E-510
the wait might be short
where are you located ?

Waiting is not an option , i`ve got a wedding coming up and i`m the photographer.

I need to find something soon .

What worries me a bit is where and how to sell my equipment easily ? i had no trouble selling my Nikon gear and i`m not so sure it will be so with Olympus or maybe you know of some place on the net where this is possible?.

Ok , i`m sure you thing why don`t you just stick to Nikon then , well i`m the type of guy who likes to explore and try out different things , i`m pretty sure i wouldn`t keep my next DSLR more then a year anyway.


I`m from Brussels , Belgium ..... by the way as i see you are an aussie .... i lived in canberra between 1972 and 1976 , fantastic country.

See ya mate

ok fair enough
just be aware that E-400 is likely in short supply
there are deals on other Olympus cameras like E-500 and E-330
which might be more common

foa a good analysis of E-400,

You're kidding, rignt? You should always give yourself time (at least a month) to get familiar with a new camera before a big event...don't know how many times I've heard, "I'm going on vacation next week...what camera should I buy?"

Not only to get familiar the camera but the lenses too (you may not be happy if you only get the kit lenses, even though they are better than some other brands)...you might not find them sharp enough for your needs.
