E-620 review RAW and JPEG image samples

34 E-620 sample images for you download and evaluate

The weather has not been kind to me since I received my Olympus E-620 sample, but there are a few shots taken with the sun shining. I've assembled a gallery of 34 shots, taken with the standard 14-42mm kit lens, the 9-18mm ultra wide angle, a 50-200mm SWD tele zoom, and the 12-60mm SWD standard zoom.

I've tried to vary the subjects and the ISO speeds as much as possible. All the shots were taken hand held, with IS switched on. There is one indoor shot taken with an FL-50R flash, fitted with the FLRA-1 bounce reflector adapter. All pictures were taken in aperture priority auto mode. Most were taken with the pattern metering setting, though some were taken with centre wighted and spot metering. JPEGs were recorded at best quality (Large Fine) and with noise filter set to Standard.

RAW file note

A link to the RAW (ORF) file for each image has been included as although virtually nothing else, at the time of writing, will load E-620 ORFs, Olympus Studio 2.22 and Master 2.11 will load E-620 ORFs. But on a precautionary note, it's possible that neither Studio or Master will process E-620 ORFs optimally, and we may need to wait for a version update to get the best out if such files.

We're always interested to know what you think of sample images - don't hesitate to post your comments on the forum thread linked to this article!

Please consider that these files are large, and you should really use a fast internet connection if you wish to download them. JPEG files are around 6MB each, and ORF RAW files around 11MB.
