If you can get this cheap (£500 or less) its a great buy. The quality of images up to A4 print size is great - much better than 5MP point and shoot. Also some digital cameras with more megapixels fail to match the E20 because of its high quality lens and pro spec features. One day I hope to advance to a better camera, the new 4/3 system looks interesting. But in the mean time I really enjoy using the E20, it produces great results and is teaching me plenty about producing great landscapes and using a well specified camera. You can pick up many of the accessories at half the RRP price (as I have done with the Wide angle lens).
If you drive a hard bargain and don't pay anywhere near RRP for the camera or accessories I can highly recommend this camera, even now (June 2004)
For - Handles well, very well specified, great results up to A4, pro quality build, excellent quality accessories, can be superb value.
Against - Slow storing pictures - particularly shooting RAW format, not very compact or light, end of line so no new accessories or software updates likely, RRP for camera and accessories grosely over infalted.
Sum up - If you can get it cheap, it will produce great results and is a great camera to learn on whilst you wait for developments in the Digital SLR market to slow down.
As a Portrait & Wedding Photographer the ultra bright optics, hadling and viewfinder are superb,as is the manual overrides for every thing including flash compensation,white balance,resoloution,bracketing,burst mode and many more,the built in flash is als excellent with no blow out of highlights .
In the studio the 38-140 equivelent lens is perfect as well as being very fast with f/2 max apeture at the 38 mm end.
It is very ruggedly built and the fixed lens means no dust to clean from images as it cannot get onto the chip so expensive repair & cleaning bills are not encountered.
The 1gb cards I use will store 102 images in raw mode and 227 in hi-res jpeg mode ,almost enough for anybody even for a 2 week holiday.
The only downsides are that when the buffer is full it takes around a minute to transfer the images to the card, and the limited no of iso settings,80,160,320,auto .the only other niggle is the noise at the higher settings ,but these are very minor points.
I have shot around 10,000 Photos on mine and would recommend it to anyone, as i have printed images for clients to 60x40 inches from this camera with no problem at all.
I work in marketing and regualy use the e20 for our projects. If your full time job is not behind the lens and you want to be a photographer, rather than pose around with a £1,000+ camera, I cant think off a better option than the e20
