Summary: Great camera for the one thinking going professional. Excellent value for the money. Has enough features and options to get you busy and experimenting for weeks or even months I have own many different cameras, including a basic cannon, but this is by far the best under 300 dollars (bought it used)
Excerpt: Its a very good camera. Takes some time to getting used to and all it can do. for me that is i m not that up on he digital camera s. For someone that knows how to work it use it it most likely will be easier for them. Takes very good pictures..
Excerpt: My husband bought me this for Christmas last year and I love it. Last year I had absolutely no clue what I was doing, but after sitting and reading through the manual that came with it I slowly learned what each thing did and how to go about taking good pictures. The lenses that come with it are okay, but I'm itching for a 50mm lens for portrait work. It's a strong, sturdy camera. I've had no issues at all with dust on the lens. I love it!
Excerpt: After doing months of research and going between the Nikon, the Canon and the Olympus, I found this camera to be the best and give you the most bang for your buck. The kit lenses are great. The only down side I have found is that all the manuals and books are really geared towards the other two cameras. It is difficult to figure everything out from your manual only. I ended up taking a photography class to learn all the manual settings.
Excerpt: I like the feel and weight of this camera, a little slow in when attempting to take action and fast changing subjects. I've taken some very good pictures with camera, for low light you will need a better lens than what comes with this camera. The camera is user friendly, and comes with loads of functions.
Excerpt: Easy to use. Has all the options you could want at more resonable price than the competition. I like the fact that it uses a compact flash instead of an sd card, its less expensive and takes a lot more pictures. The popart setting also makes for great fun photos.
Excerpt: I have had my olympus for about a year now and I just really cant come up with anything bad to say about it. This camera was my first D-SLR and it replaced my olympus OM-10 This is the first digital camera that I have used that actually can compare with the quality of the 35mm om-10 The first photo is from my E-500. the second, (black & white) from my 35mm you be the judge.
