Olympus E-500

best4reviews.com
27 February 2007
  • Summary: The E-500 is packed with kit too much to go over in detail here. Suffice to say, this is as comprehensively specified D-SLR as you’re likely to want (or need) and at £600 (for the standard kit that includes the 14-45mm lens used in the test) it’s great value.
  • Pros: Lightweight and easy to use, excellent image quality, comprehensive control options.
  • Cons: Styling is a bit on the chunky side.

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Olympus Evolt E-500 is a very good entry-level D-SLR that falls just shy of greatness.

  • Conclusion: Olympus E-500 digital SLR camera When the Olympus E-300 first appeared in the market, many raised an eyebrow. Was this the camera that would truly make a mark for the FourThirds system? It wasn't.

  • Summary: A more classic design from Olympus that veers away from the E-300’s eccentric body shape. Same 8mp sensor but with a new noise filter makes this a far more attractive buy. Good colour rendition and a special anti-dust mechanism for clean images makes this well worth a closer look.

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Samenvattend kan ik niet anders concluderen dan dat Olympus met de E-500 een zeer sterk product heeft neergezet. Voor zijn prijs krijg je bijzonder veel: talrijke speciale functies, een uitstekende beeldkwaliteit en een ergonomisch zeer doordacht ontwerp.

Test: Olympus E-500 (Digital-SLR)

CHIP Online
19 February 2007
  • Conclusion: Die Olympus E-500 ist eine preiswerte Digital-SLR mit eng beieinander liegenden Stärken und Schwächen: hoher Auflösung und guter Farbwiedergabe steht ein zu hohes Rauschen gegenüber, sinnvolle Ausstattungsdetails kontrastieren mit teilweise hakeliger Bedienung.
  • Pros: Hohe Auflösung, Staubschutz-Funktion, 15 Motivprogramme
  • Cons: Erhöhtes Rauschen

Olympus E-500

1 February 2007
  • Excerpt: Le E-300 ne pouvant plus rivaliser avec les reflex numériques de Canon et Nikon, Olympus a donc remplacé son modèle par le E-500. Le boitier au design novateur du E-300 est aux oubliettes, le public ne l'avait pas vraiment apprécié, du coup Olympus est revenu sur un look beaucoup plus classique et...
  • Pros: Format de capteur 4/3, Système anti-poussière
  • Cons: quelques lenteurs
