As Gordon said in his excellent review, burst in E-620 is not 4 but around 3.5 fps. I don't think it's fair from Olympus to masks real burst speed. I know that the difference is minor, but difference is present. Is there way to improve it using faster memory cards or it can be improved by manufacturs firmware (if there will be any firmware update at all)?

Have you tried different JPEG quality/compression levels?

Well, I mostly shoot at JPEG normal...I have tried with RAW and I had feeling that the camera was "tired" -(2GB CF) - it wasn't clear burst shooting...

Burst speed will also deteriorate with increasing shutter times. 4 fps will be under favourable conditions with good light, short shutter times and low ISO. Higher ISO may add a little processing time. Also things like noise reduction settings may influence speed due to variations in processing time needed for each shot.

And if the camera re-focuses between shots, which it most likely does, AF speed will be a factor too. So favourable AF conditions and a lens capable of fast AF will be factors too.

Also, turn off noise reduction ;)
