If the Olympus E-620 was a cheap Four Thirds camera, consider the E-600 an even cheaper Four Thirds camera.
Essentially an E-620 without the perks, the E-600 looks to be the exact same 12MP camera as its older sibling with the same 2.7 inch rotating live preview screen. But to bring the cost of a fully loaded 14-42mm f3.5/5.6 lens kit down by $100, the aptly priced $600 E-600 removes a few key features:
• backlit buttons (ouch)
• three art filters (no biggie)
• two-shot multi exposure mode (half ouch)
• aspect mask control (half ouch, it allows you to crop the viewfinder to the aspect you are shooting)

The M1 chip delivers 3.5x faster performance than the previous generation all while using way less power. Get up to 18 hours of battery life.
So if you were considering an E-620 and care about the end product alone (your photos), it's probably worth saving the extra $100 to reinvest that cash into more glass—assuming you can wait for its release this November. [Imaging Resource via Electronista]
