Hello, no I don't want mirrorless, nothing wrong with them but I just want a reflex
Pentax, I've seen them the other day, the body is little smaller but it's roughly the same dimension of a D3100, with a lens attached, although it has more advanced features and better lcd.
The problem of dimensions I think relates to the lenses, the APS-C cameras require longer lenses to get the same focal leght as 4/3 camera. So on 4/3 you save a lot of space, but the sensor is smaller so you get more noise, that's the price you pay.
If I didn't shoot Oly, I think I would be shooting Nikon - but it wouldn't be an entry-level Nikon -- the D7000 would be the lowest I would go for. From a price point perspective, to me it made better sense to pay what I would have paid for an entry-level DSLR and get a camera with mid-range features/capabilities (e.g. DOF preview, auto-bracketing, wireless flash firing, etc.).
Well, for sure D7000 is a great camera but it's little bulky and pricey, it seems just little bigger than D90, but it has compatibility with older MF lenses.
Anyway I found a store that has the E-620, so in the next days I'm gonna try it. Man I also found an E-420 wich sells for 240 euros, tempting...
My choices are Olympus (E-620) or Nikon (D90 or D7000).
jwnrw, how is the E-620 doing at night and lowlight levels? Cause from the tests I saw it produces dark images that require big exp compensation, like +2 or +2.5, than you get more noise and also some banding
