Olympus E-420 DSLR 'world's smallest and lightest'

Olympus Olympus has announced a new entry level DSLR camera called the Evolt E-420. The price is right — starting at $499 in May — and it’ll weigh in at well under a pound (13.4 ounces).

Other features include a 2.7-inch LCD screen, ISO levels of 100 to 1600, face detection, pop-up flash, and compatibility with CompactFlash (I and II), xD cards, and Microdrives.

John and Peter are buzzing around CeBIT today and will try to track this little guy down for a hands-on demonstration.
