    Here is a side by side comparison.

    The big difference, IMO, is the lenses used by either camera. The 300D uses Canon EF & EF-S lenses (and compatible)...which includes a huge selection and some of the best lenses in the world. The E300 uses a new lens system called 4/3. I don't know how many lenses are available but it's certainly one a fraction of what is available in the EF mount.

    For this reason, I would look at the Canon over the Olympus. Look around, you may be able to find a used newer/better model for that price. Check out the Rebel XT (350D) or the 20D.

    My opinion... not the body is the most important thing when you buy... the lenses are... you can take a Canon 300D and then when you will upgrade the body you will have more accesories and other things...
    if you have money you can buy a Canon 30D...
