  • Conclusion: Olympus E-520 digitalSLR camera The Olympus E-520 seems a logical continuation of the E-510. The year is over, so a new type number will attract the attention to the brand again. However, saying just that would not do the Olympus E-520 justice.

Camera Labs
1 June 2008
  • Summary: The Olympus E-520 is the successor to one of the most popular DSLRs of the past year.

27 May 2008
  • Summary: First impressions are important, as that's where most of us make a decision in the camera shop. As soon as I picked up the camera I was on the wrong footing. Had someone forgot to add the meat to the flesh? The light weight sent out the wrong signal.
  • Pros: Lightweight, 10x magnification in Live View, Long lasting battery, LCD easy to view, even in bright light, Impressive low noise at ISO1600, Image stabilisation, Variety of custom functions
  • Cons: No front exposure dial, AF slow in Live View, Menu not as intuitive as some

  • Conclusion: De Olympus heeft een mooi en overzichtelijk assortiment DSLR camera’s in huis. Innovatief en daar waar mogelijk verbeterd op essentiële punten, een omschrijving die de Olympus E-520 past.

Olympus E-520

Prophotos.ru
7 December 2009
  • Conclusion: Из-за несколько ограниченной оперативности управления, относительно низкой скорости серийной съемки и определенных недостатков в работе системы автофокусировки фотоаппарат немного не дотягивает до полупрофессионального уровня. Скорее это очень продвинутая любительская модель.
  • Pros: развитая эргономика;, продуманное управление с потрясающими возможностями настройки камеры;, отлично реализованный режим Live View;, эффективный оптический стабилизатор;, качественный штатный объектив.
  • Cons: недостаточно «цепкий» фазовый автофокус с малым числом точек;, уровень шумов незначительно выше среднего по классу;, маленький видоискатель.

  • Conclusion: Olympus E-520 digitale SLR camera De Olympus E-520 lijkt een logisch vervolg op de E-510. Het jaar is voorbij, dus een nieuw typenummer geeft opnieuw aandacht aan het merk. Maar daarmee zouden we de Olympus E-520 zeker tekort doen.
