Caig... are you still using your E510, or did you move up to an E30, E5, or OM-D?

Actually, Marty, I have moved in the opposite direction.  I started with an e-5 and have collected a number of cameras including the e-30, e620 and e-510, which were purchased in that order.  Hard to believe, but on a dollar-for-dollar basis, the used cameras are fabulous values. I worry less and enjoy more.

I picked up the e-510 as part of an Ikelite underwater package on e-bay a few months ago.  I would have preferred an e-620 version, but this deal came along and the price was right.  I have not had the chance to use the underwater housing yet, but I have been pleasantly surprised by the performance of the camera on land.  Not bad.  As I have posted elsewhere on this thread, some people are getting some good results with the camera.  It is not an E-5, but it is capable of producing nice images.  Right now the biggest barrier to better images is me and not the camera.
