Went into J&R camera yesterday and they had an E-410 in the display case. I did not have time to have the guy take it out but it is FREAKING SMALL!!! I think it makes the rebels look big. From the looks of it I don't think it would fit well in my hands and my hands are not that big. I think it would be better suited for women's hands (maybe their target market??) Might go back tomorrow and see what it feels like. 2 lens kit for 899 + a free 512mb XD card. Still no 510 though :mad:

I saw a real, live E510 last Friday at the Photograhic and Imaging show in Toronto. The Olympus booth had a dummy one. But some Olympus VP gave one to one of the presenters during a session. This guy set it up and used it for the final demonstration.... which was kind of entertaining because he didn't know the camera at all, and was fumbling around with the buttons the whole time.

I didn't get to handle it, but I did see it work.

yes it seems small
510 is the main game, and we are all hanging out to see how it goes
should be released in around a few days if my info is right

I too saw the E-410 at the Toronto Show. I have travelled a bit lately to UK and South Africa and played with the E-400 a few times. Almost bought it but glad I waited. I picked up my E-410 on Wednesday, will be putting it through its paces this weekend. So far I like it.:)
