Advise please

Hello all
I have a E450 at the moment and I want to upgrade but I'm not sure what to get next, I keep looking at the e620 and the e3, I intend on keeping my e450 as a second body, could anyone give some advise on what are the pros and cons of the 620 to the e3

Many thanks

Carl

The E-620 is a generation on from the E-3. The E-620 is the same generation as your E-450, so image quality will be very similar but with 12MP insteadof 10MP. The E-3 is fast, has 11 AF points instead of 3 for the E-450 (and 7 for the E-620), and of course has a magnesium alloy body and a very large viewfinder view compared to your E-450. But the live view system is not as good as the E-450 or E-620.

The E-620 is basically an E-450 with the 12MP sensor and an articulating screen and updated AF system. Both use the same batteries, too. If you are thinking of the E-3, you might want to consider the E-30, which is the same newer generation as the E-450 and E-620, but has the shooting speed of the E-3, if not the alloy body or dust and moisture sealing.
