DPRewview has the news, including a preview of the E-410. Two things that I thought were worth a note:
- I thought it was a bad sign for Olympus when they only released the E-400 in Europe; that reeks of a company on its last legs. But the E-410 has world-wide release, so Americans can try out a dSLR so small that it looks positively cute.
- The E-510 has image stabilization, making Nikon and Canon pretty much the last remaining no-body-IS stalwarts. This likely also means the upcoming E-1 successor will have IS as well, making it only the second advanced-level dSLR to feature this, after the Pentax K10D. If you're one of the few sinking large amounts of money into an Olympus system, in-body-IS plus the 14-35mm and 35-100mm f/2 zooms* will be a heck of a low-light combo, especially if they've made strides against their ISO noise problem.
*For the uninitiated, these lenses are at least twice as light-sensitive as virtually any other zoom lens ever made.
