Olympus E-400 Review

Value For Money

Twin Lens Kit is Better Value

Based on its £700 list price at the time of writing, the E-400 single lens kit (with 28-84mm equivalent zoom) is more expensive than most other 10MP DSLRs, but £800 for a twin lens kit covering the equivalent of 28-300mm focal lengths isn’t to be sniffed at. Taking dealer-discounts into consideration, you’re getting a lot of technology for your money and arguably wouldn’t need to buy another lens.
