    Hi all
    thinking of purchasing a 'Olympus E300 Digital SLR Camera' from Argos.
    I have a few questions to ask

    a) it does not come with a FLASH . how mush will it cost to buy a cheap
    flash that works with the camera?
    b) it comes with a 'Zuiko Digital 14-45mm zoom lens, 28-90mm equivalent'
    with my Canon A85 I have a zoom of X3 in the same terms how does the E300
    compare
    c) the camera comes with a Lithium-ion battery and charger, how much does a
    replacement battery cost and how many shots will I get from one charge.

    Thanks
    Dave

    I have no experience of this camera, but I guess you know that the
    latest version is already out....

    Useful because it discusses shortcomings of the earlier camera.

    The earlier review of more use to you is at:-

    http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/olympuse300/

    extract....
    "Olympus EZ 14 - 45 mm F3.5 - F5.6 (28 - 90 mm equiv.)
    The E-300's Kit lens performs quite well, exhibiting good sharpness at
    wide angle, a little softer at telephoto. Obviously it's a little soft
    at maximum aperture (almost all lenses are), but stopped down it
    produced good resolution. Note that the resolution bars are actually
    larger at 14 mm because of barrel distortion. "

    Some newsgroup contributors appear to have confused
    the meaning of "discussion" with "digression".
