I decided to order an E-620. My "old" E-520 has some problems with autofocus now. Is still a functional camera, but... Probably I will repair it, after I will receive the new camera.

Have you recieved the E-620? How do you like it in comparison to the E-520?
I am saving money to buy a new camera too :)

Cristian, Have you tried giving the AF sensor in the bottom of the camera body a good blow out with a puffer brush?
The Giottos Rocket Blower is pretty good, just don't use canned or compressed air. The same goes for the area under the mirror, again be careful as the mirror surface is easily damaged.
It cured my AF issues.

I think you will like the E-620

Hi Bill,

I will try to clean the AF sensor, but I don't think that this is my problem...

My first impressions...
Pros for E-620 (comparison with E-520):
- the vari-angle (swing and tilt) screen
- more ISO values for manual setting

what you are saying here is remarkable CM, because this is exactly what i felt when i got the E620 after using the E 520 for only about 6weeks. although they may seem to be much alike.

did also use the EP-1 for a couple of hours, seem to be a bet odd not to have a view finder but the screen is very clear and gives sharp images.

for my 22 years of using Olympus cameras, i have to say they make a real impressive ones. just wish they broaden there line of lenes to fit the needs for wildlife photographers.
