My advice would be to handle both cameras and see which you prefer. The E-620 is quite lightweight compared to the E-30 and not as chunky, which does mean when it's teamed up with a heavier pro quality lenses that it doesn't feel as well balanced in your hand. The E-30 being that bit heavier feels better with the heavier lenses. Of course, if you decide to go for the E-620, you could always buy the battery hand-grip to provide that bit of extra weight to even things up.
Overall though, the main thing to consider is which of these two cameras has it's buttons most ergonomically positioned for your hands. The menus are very similar for each camera, they both share the same sensor (which is a cracker) and they are both classed as more of an enthusiasts camera. The E-30 is little more advanced than the E-620, having more focus points etc., but not by much.
