There's no doubt the E-410 is a significantly 'better' camera than the E-400. Fundamental upgrades to the sensor, processor and LCD screen have led to improvements in both the handling and image quality, and the reduction in noise is astounding. It does appear that the move from a conventional CCD to a LiveMOS sensor is the right one. In addition, the E-410 now has live view, which is great if you're into landscape, still life or macro photography. There's still a bit of work to do with regards to dynamic range - the E-410's highlights blow out far too easily for our liking - but if you can work around that, you'll see that Olympus has delivered a great all-round package at a fantastic price.
