Thread: Nikon 8400 vs olympus 7070

  1. #1

    Default Nikon 8400 vs olympus 7070

    Has anyone used both the 8400 and olympus 7070? How do they compare? Is the EVF on the 8400 a cause for concern? I think I would prefer an optical one... Well, I've read lengthy reviews online for both but I still can't quite decide.

    I'm migrating from my EOS 5 to digital and I don't really want to lug along a digital SLR when travelling, etc. Or am I better off with the 350D since I've a Canon system?

    Anyone has the latest price for the 8400 and 7070? Can PM me? Thanks!

    why dont you consider getting the pro1 if you are seriously thinking of getting a PnS digicam? there's a chance that you will be able to reuse stuff like your canon flash if you have one...

    however, i think there is very little difference in travelling with a semi-pro style digicam like the pro1, c7070 or the 8400 vs using a dslr like a 350d. both types of camera are hardly pocketable (the c7070 is possible in a large jacket though) and the 350d with the 17-85 lens is an excellent piece of kit for travelling...

    I would prefer the Nikon 8400.
    One of the nice feature is the super wide angle (the widest among the prosumer camera), and excellent image quality.

    Get the canon 350D and the 17-85mm IS ! (not the 18-55mm non-IS)
    they make a good small and light pair.
