a second-hand e-510 + ZD14-54 + an FL50 flash + a decent tripod + a good polarising filter + a sholder bag (eg. Apex 140AW) + small accessories (batteries, memory card, cable release, folding reflector)

I would not recommend an E-510 (or probably E-410 for that matter), since it has a number of quirks that make it harder to take great pictures out of the box. The next generation (E-520/E-420) fixed most of the problems with the E-510/E-410. Just to be clear, you can take good pictures with the E-510/E-410, you just have to be more careful with exposure and highlight blowout.
