Thank you for answer Gordon. I already own E400 and I'm very satisfied with it. I really don't care about missing LiveView. The only "problem" I have is all these small missing options, which are now standard in E410, like the compressed RAW, ability to turn the noise reduction completely OFF, MLU switch or for example switch for AF assist lamp when flash is raised up. It's a shame Olympus did not added these features in E400 too, but that's the life
But I'm really surprised they decided to remove (from final E410) the ability to step the ISO by small 1/3 steps. It's soooo useful. Can't believe they removed such useful option. Why the camera manufacturers do such steps? I mean adding some excellent features and then removing another also useful features?
Is the incrementing ISO by 1/3 steps in E410 so useless or is it not suitable for a concept of "entry level" camera? BTW, this "entry level DSLR" stamp is in my humble opinion another Olympus mistake. There are so many pro photographers who want a fully featured but small sized complement or "always carry" camera. And this is exactly what E4xx concept is, except the crippled/missing features, which are standard for example in E510. There is only EV bracketing left in E410..but E510 have also Focus, WB or Flash bracketing! And many other small but useful features are missing in E4xx, which are ages in older "E" cameras.
This is really frustrating. I personally don't need or want bulky camera. The smaller body, the better for me. I would gladly pay the E510 price for E410 but with E510 FW. Of course, stabilized E4xx would be great, but I can live without it if it's a question of larger body. Small body is a major advantage for me. And unfortunately, the Olympus (as well as other manufacturers) decided to equal the "small body" and "entry level" market, which is from my point of view a complete mistake.
