Summary: Beautifully made camera with fast response and clear imaging. Sweet shutter and thorough display provide all the features a photographer could want. The E-520 is light years ahead of point and shoot cameras, and is worth every penny. J&R gave us a great deal on a package that couldn't be beat!
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
SUPERB DSLR, Beautiful, sturdy, versatile, easy to use.

Summary: This is my first DSLR camera. I spent many days and nights, stressing over whether I wanted an Olympus E-520, or a Nikon D3000, or the Canon's 450D. I strongly suggest you go to a camera shop, and handle any camera you are interested in BEFORE purchasing, it truly boils down to which suits you the best. First of all, Canon and Nikon are the big dogs in advertising. Their names are well known, and recognizable.
Summary: I received the camera one day and was shooting pictures like a pro the next day. The camera makes it easy! Olympus quality is obvious in this camera, so many features it will take me years to use them all. And while I have been playing around with it, I have slowly started getting used to how they all work. I am by no means a professional photographer, so learning is taking priority. The instructions are very clear and well written to help even a novice like me.
