my old point and shoot broke, so i decided to by a DSLR on a whim.
i always liked Olympus, and this camera is no different. great piece of equipment that took my photography from a snapshot level to a semi pro (i'm actually selling some photos online now).
i have taken it on trips and shoot in a small home made studio and it's been performing at a more than expected level for me.
i have also upgraded one of the lenses it came with to a more powerful zoom lens which added a lot of capabilities to what i used to have.
the e 500 also has a super sonic dust removal system which protects it from dust on the sensor, which could be a problem elsewhere.
the only issue i have with it is the auto focus. the auto focus for this camera only works on three points in a very small range in the view finder, and very annoying to work with. now that i am getting more proficient with this camera i find that i am using manual focus more and more. but i hear the e-510 fixes that though.
still great purchase at a good price
