Summary: The E-500 is my first DSLR. I have owned it for about two years. Overall, the camera is not too bad for what it is, but you need deep pockets for any upgrades. Also, the kit lenses are soft (fuzzy). Later, you will find out that the "high grade" upgrade lens are soft, too.
Summary: Even though this was remanufactured, the camera arrived in excellent condition. Unfortunately, the camera did not come as advertised. The camera was falsely advertised as having a 14-45mm lense. What you really get is a 17.5-45mm made in China cheap throw-away lense!
