Hello, Zizo, welcome to the Cameralabs forums!

To answer your question, it would be helpful if you provided a bit more information about what you'll be photographing in specific. There are quite a few other DSLRs on the market today that may be better suited for the types of photography that you'll be doing, notably the newer DSLRs. Some of the newer entry level DSLRs from Canon, Nikon and Sony have much better imaging sensors than the older E-420 or the A200, plus a better feature set. I'm not too familiar with Olympus or Sony's models, but I'm pretty sure that you'd be better off with a newer model. What made these two models that you selected stand out from the others?
What's your budget for the camera plus lens(es)?

Hey thx for replying

I only buying as it required for my photography subject i'm doing this semester....
From what i understood from the guide is that we will be playing around with the focus and iso to take different picture that represent letters and make a word of them... another task is to get ten pictures and make a story of them...

my budget is $ 300-400

For that budget, consider upper end compact cameras as well such as whatever the Canon G series is up to (G12?)

If I was you though Id probably get one of the micro 4/3rs cameras.

I agree with Jeremy -- I'd be looking at an upper end point and shoot model (or what we used to call "prosumer"). The G12 is an amazing camera, as is the Panasonic Lumix (LX5, I think is the newest model?). You can do everything but exchange the lenses -- and even then you can get adapters for the Gseries which allows you to go wider or longer.
