  1. Olympus PEN E-PL2 review

    Olympus PEN E-PL2 review

    6  

    Olympus has a lot riding on the E-PL2 if it is to compete in the increasingly crowded compact system camera market. Angela Nicholson puts the latest 12.3Mp Pen through its paces

    Does this DSLR have enough to tempt Four Thirds photographers?

    Olympus E-620 review

    The Olympus E-620 DSLR fits nugly between the E-30 and the recently announced E-450, in the middle of the Olympus 'E' range.

    Olympus 1030 SW review

    If you were to drop a DSLR into a stream it would be toast. So if you're thinking of journeying into a steamy jungle or snorkelling in a tiger-infested mangrove swamp, you might want to use something a bit tougher and lighter.

    Olympus E-520 review

    9  

    The past year has been quite a busy one for Olympus. First there was the launch of the cute E-410 and E-510, followed by the impressive professional E-3 DSLR, which saw one of the world's most innovative camera brands re-enter the serious DSLR market.

    Small is beautiful, or so it's said. Could this be true of a DSLR that's as small as a large compact? Well, if you give the E-420 a chance, not only will you find it astonishing value, but its dinky size means you'll end up taking it everywhere with you.

    Olympus mju 850 SW review

    6  

    An errant splash can spell instant death for most digital cameras, water and electronics being a combination that's even less compatible than chalk and cheese. The Olympus mju 850 SW sets out to change all that. Not only is it ruggedised to offer a degree of shock resistance such that you can drop it from a height of 1.5 metres, but it's also fully waterproof.

    Olympus ED 50mm f/2.0 Macro review

    Olympus ED 50mm f/2.0 Macro review

    4  

    This Four Thirds lens has 'macro' on the side but only a 1:2 magnification ratio. It relies on the 2x crop factor to bring objects up to size. Despite this, the 50mm lens feels more like a 100mm on Olympus bodies

    Olympus Zuiko 4-45mm f/3.5-5.6 review

    6  

    Despite being mainly a kit lens, the Olympus 14-45mm has a lot going for it. A new multi-coating helps keep ghosting and flare to a minimum, while an aspherical element adds to the quality

    Olympus Zuiko 40-150mm f3.5-4.5 review

    10  

    The Zuiko 40-150mm lens is designed for the Olympus E-series cameras, notably the brand new E-500 (reviewed on p34). The Four Thirds sensor in the E-series gives a 2x focal factor, so this lens is an 80-300mmzoom in 35mm speak

    Olympus E-3 review

    9  

    Four long years have passed since Olympus launched its first professional digital SLR. During that time there may have been moments when some Olympus fans doubted there would ever be a successor to the much-loved E-1. Now the wait is finally over with the launch of the E-3

    Olympus mju790SW review

    8  

    When someone tells a reviewer that a camera is drop, shock and water-resistant, what do they seriously expect to happen? Quite... the claim's going to be tested. What red-blooded reviewer is going to take some camera maker's word for it?

    Olympus Mju 770SW review

    6  

    This camera sounds a good buy, considering it sells for just over £200. A respectable, relatively low-noise 7.1 megapixel sensor, 3x optical zoom and a sturdy, brushed steel case, waterproof to 10m, generous 2.5in LCD and so on.

    Olympus E-510 review

    9  

    The promise of compact Four Thirds SLRs was finally fulfilled with the launch of the Olympus E-400 a year ago. That model has been superseded by the E-410 and is now joined by this, the excellent E-510

    Olympus 11-22mm f/2.8-3.5 review

    4  

    With its zoom range of 11-22mm, this lens sounds wide until you put it on an Olympus body, where the 2x crop factor turns it into a 22-44mm lens. This means the angle of view is less than with any other lens in its class

    Olympus E-410 review

    9  

    In almost every physical respect, this dinky DSLR camera is identical to the Olympus E-400, launched barely six months ago. It's still supremely small and light, and it noticeably lacks the bulge of a battery grip that appears to be standard

    Olympus FE-250 review

    Not many camera manufacturers would have the temerity to boast how few features their camera has, but that's exactly what Olympus has done with the new FE-250 - the top model in its FE (fun and easy) range of digital compacts

    Olympus' latest super-zoom packs a massive 18x zoom range that goes from a wide 28mm to an amazing paparazzi-busting 504mm equivalent, and all with a full spread of manual controls

    Within an hour of picking up the 770SW it had been dropped on concrete, submerged in water, jumped on and then popped in the freezer. And it still came out very much alive and kicking

    Despite the increasing affordability of digital SLRs, manufacturers are populating the middle ground with bridge cameras or 'super zooms' - enthusiasts' models that aren't quite as good as a Nikon D80

    Olympus E-500 review

    Olympus has obviously been listening to our gripes, with the E-500 looking like the camera the E-300 should have been all along. With more of a resemblance to the E-1 and a 'proper' digital SLR design, it also comes packed with clever photographic features
