Some customer reviews of Olympus E-410 with 14-42mm lens

Most helpful reviews

Baz, Dorset Experienced amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I have been using cameras for 48 years. This is as easy and straightforward a camera as any I have used, whether DSLR, SLR or any other type. It is light, small, easy to carry. The lenses are as good as any I have had before. Despite problems I got another before I had it repaired. I had always been a Canon man until now but the Olympus is so much cheaper and lighter with images just as sharp I am a convert.
Bad points:
The anti-red eye is a series of multi-flashes before the shutter releases. This is terribly annoying to people and some even find it painful. I can no longer use this setting without making people angry. That is NOT what a photographer should do!
The camera was initially quick to auto focus on indistinct subjects such as clouds and flying aircraft. After 18 months and 7000 photos this feature failed and it refuses to focus at all, constantly searching. On the rare times it manages to focus, the plane has gone. I bought another before having it repaired as I am lost without it.

Rogan, Berwick upon Tweed Keen Photography Amatuer Now

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This is an excellant camera! I have never used a Digital SLR before and with just a brief look through the booklet I was taking some amazing pictures. I would recommend it to anyone and at the price I bought it, it was a steal. Even just a lense would cost more than the package deal I received.
Bad points:
My only issue was when the red eye flash was on and the auto focus kept jumping in, it would make the rapid flashes before taking the shot several times; which left people just waiting painfully for the picture to be done.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Comfortable to hold and not too difficult to master the many setting options. Having the two lenses certainly improves its range
Bad points:
Cant think of any at the moment as I have not had the camera long enough to determine if there are any shortcomings,
