The camera I always come back to!

Osirus, Amazon
12 January 2015
  • Summary: This is the camera I always come back to. I've shot with the newer omd-em5 with the fantastic 12-40mm lens, Canon 30D, 40D and I've also shot with the E30 and E3 and this camera is better than all of them. In terms of sharpness, the only olympus dslr that can beat the E510 is the E5. The E510's superior sharpness comes from its weak AA filter and that's why I always come back to this camera.

Really really awesome!

JtheSuperSlug "I'm learning", Amazon
18 November 2014
  • Summary: Fantastic Camera! Great action, absolutely magnificent. I got it used and it works like a dream. I'm a beginner when it comes to photography, so this camera is perfect for me. The guy I bought it from included a case, a flash, and a few other odds and ends that I'm really excited to mess around with. Absolutely phenomenal camera, I recommend it to anyone looking to start off with a pretty simple DSLR camera. I will warn you now, the Olympus lenses are pricey.

Love it for the greatness of it

A. Widjaja, Amazon
19 June 2014
  • Summary: I had used this camera for 5 years and it was my first DSLR, I am glad i didn't choose Canon or Nikon for the simple fact that this one is the lightest of them all to carry with the lens attached. I used it to photograph several weddings, parties, church Christmas shows, graduation. I used it with Zuiko 14-54mm lens, and it was a perfect match, AF is fast, battery life is good, sharpness is good.

Breath taking pictures

Bob H., Amazon
4 July 2013
  • Summary: This camera is a wonderful canvas to get those once in a life time portraits in your photo album. I had bought this camera, read the instructions, took some pictures, re-read the instructions, honed the mechanics in a little and I was off on vacation to my nieces wedding and to take pictures of the scenery in Ohio. The pictures are stellar. I have to say my skill level in photography is a little above average after 40 years, (I should be a little better by now).

THIS WAS A GIFT

Joan E. Hartsough "Joan & Dennis", Amazon
26 February 2013
  • Summary: It was a used camera, so the price was right to give it as a gift. I know nothing about cameras, so I can't speak to its abilities. The delivery was on time. It was well packed and exactly as described. My brother was DELIGHTED and emails me beautiful pictures constantly. He has purchased additional lens and couldn't be happier. Start to finish, I am so glad I purchased the Olympus Evolt. My brother is very into photography.

Olympus E-510 camera body

click, Amazon
4 July 2011
  • Summary: I have the exact same camera. As an avid amateur photogapher I take a very large number of photos and wanted a back-up camera body that used the same lenses,same batteries, same media card and same flash. My Olympus is a good camera, however, as a company Olympus is very, very poor when it comes to support/repairs for older model cameras--actually they won't.

E-510 Photography Star

Michael Gilbert, Amazon
10 February 2010
  • Summary: I've been an Olympus fan since the OM line was introduced. In fact, I resisted making the digital switch until just 18 months ago. The E-330 was my first Digital SLR and it gave me pixel-fever... more megapixels please! The E-510 does it all. It provides a fully automatic that anyone can use or, extreme manual control for the pro. Coupled with OLY digital lenses, I gave an exhaustive test using the kit lenses for macro photography to scenics that just blows me away.
