Currently I do have E-520 which mostly I use with Sigma 50-500 lense. I would like to get used with low mileage either E-3 or E-5. E-3 body I could get for ~ $300 E-5 would be ~800 or more. Any suggestion? reasons? Thanks in advance.

I am using a Nikon D90 atm, BUT, I've set it at 12.2 megapixels yet when I open even the raw file in PS its pixelated beyond comprehension, what on earth have I done wrong? (it has grain and that ok from the low liught, but its not noise, just horrid pixelisation, my Olympus E-300 and E-500 shoot better quality than the D90. Mind you, I've never used a Nikon before and finding navigating a little hard. So my question is this, should I stick with the Nkion D90? Or would my Olympus E-500 be ok...

Its been a long time since I posted here...actually posted anywhere. I was one of the Oly users that switched after about the 2nd gen of micro 4/3rds to a Nikon system and with the exception of a brief time with an E-PL2 kit, I haven't touched an Oly DSLR in the last 5 years. Nonetheless, DR limitations and all.... the E-510 was and still is my favorite machines certain things. I recently picked one up on ebay with just a basic kit lens for occasional use and really quite like it....but I...

I read many good things about the E-510 but am  a little confused about the suggested workaround settings to get optimum results. First, some articles suggest adjust EV to -3 for underexposure prevention, and some make no mention of this. Secondly, some people suggest using the Natural Picture Mode with Noise Filter Off or Low, and Sharpness and Contrast set at -2, or as some say Sharpness -1 and Contrast 0. From those of you who have used the camera, what settings have you found work best...

I damaged this camera.  It was so dependable, but I cannot decide how to replace it with a retired slim budget.  I wonder about the new M-10 .. But there was something so solid and dependable about the E-510 . Now, my pictures are grandchildren and pets with flowers here and there -- both fast moving objects with continual reliable focusing and a lot of indoor shooting. .. I have no one to advise me now, so I am just "stuck" in reading reviews and forums.  Someone please give me ideas. I...

Good afternoon all, Having got into Mft through a secondhand EP-3 to complement my wonderful E5, I fell in love with the primes. I have the Oly 45mm f1.8, a little marvel, and the 75mm F1.8, an amazing piece of kit, complete with the Pana 14 F2.5!  I have now taken the plunge and just bought an E-M1 c/w 12-40mm.   I am still learning, but this camera is already delighting me, and confusing me, and giving me plenty to learn!  :-)   My question:  I am really taken with the idea of supplementing...

Recently purchased an Olympus OM D EM 1 with a 12-40 2.8 Pro lens. Have been a longtime Canon user new to the world of micro four thirds. It is my understanding that Olympus will be coming out with additional Pro lenses both a wide angel and a telephoto. Has anyone heard the status/time frame of either? Is there any issues or is an adapter required when using Panasonic micro four third lens one the EM 1? What are the issues when using legacy Olympus four third lenses from a E510 camera such...

I recently purchased a Lilliput 665GL external HDMI monitor to use with my Olympus E-5 camera. When I plugged it in to the HDMI port on the camera and switched the camera to live view it brought up the last photo taken from my card but will not allow live view, nor will it allow the camera to take photo's or video while the monitor is plugged in. Unplug the monitor and everything on the camera begins to function normally again. We plugged this same monitor into my wife's Canon 7D and it...

Picked up a used e-500 as a starter in digital slr.  Everything worked great when I bought it, but now pictures taken in auto mode have a blue tint to them.  The other modes seem to work fine.  I don't use auto mode much, but I don't want to have this problem "creep " into other modes.  I probably just changed a setting but can't figure it out. Any help?

I switched to Nikon a couple years ago but had a hard time letting go of my beloved Olympus gear.  My husband is bugging about it though so it's time.  Where's the best place for me to sell it these days?  Just craigslist or ebay or are there any Olympus groups online that have selling forums? E-1, E-510, E-30 50mmF2, sigma 17-50mmf2.8, and more..... ------Cathyhttp://www.cathykurtzphotography.com
