The E-410 is a good camera, certainly good value for the $$$. If the camera is good for you or not can only be decided by yourself. All depends on your ambitions, budget and expectations. IMO any dSLR camera is good for learning photography because how much you learn mostly depends on you. There are more advanced cameras but also simpler ones on the market. Visit 4/3 forum where the camera is discussed, read the posts about the camera and then maybe things will be cleared.
