I love this camera -- have had it for over 2 years and am actually reluctant to "upgrade" to any of the newer models as long as this camera still works so beautifully for me! Problems: none

I got this camera about a year ago for my wife when the 2 lens kit started really coming down in price. She went to the store and looked at the Nikon D40 and the Canon DRebel and almost immediately pronounced the E-500 the clear winner. I'd been using my E-300 for about 2 years before that and had been extremely satisfied with my camera. When the E-500 was announced as a replacement for the E-300 I didn't think I liked it. I wasn't happy that Olympus felt they had to design a plastic, more ...

Consruction feels very solid and the ergonmics are outstanding. Kit lenses are quite nice. The 40-150 is a real star among value priced lenses. I've been extremely please overall with the image quality. There has been a bit of a learning curve for me, but I have no doubts that this is the right camera to take my photography skills to the next level. Best purchase i've made in a few years. Problems: my only complaint is the one-touch white balance button, but if my thumb wasn't so big, it ...

I'm fairly new to the world of Digital SLRs, and I chose the E-500 due to it's consistently strong reviews and price to performance ratio. I purchased the two lens set and I've been extremely impressed with the camera so far. I really love the feel of the camera as it fits my hands extremely well and is well balanced with weight distribution. Problems: ISO above 400 starts to get a little 'noisy'. The manual, although fairly extensive, could be a little more detailed for less experienced ...

prima di acquistarla l'ho confrontata con la famigerata canon 350D (rebel xt), e di quest'ultima non mi ha convinto l'obiettivo in dotazione e la costruzione del corpo macchina. la Olympus mi ha convinto per il kit, la qualità delle immagini, per la buona costruzione. PRO ottimo display 2,5", qualità immagini, buon corpo macchina e obiettivi in dotazione CONTRO mirino un po troppo piccolo (necessita dell' OLYMPUS ME-1), rumore evidente ad alti ISO (800>1600). nel complesso la ricomprerei, ...

After considerable testing, I have come to the conclusion that the Evolt 500 is bar none the best 8MP entry level dSLR camera on the market. The camera body is built very well but not as ruggid as the Canon 20/30D but much tougher than the Canon Rebel XT. In terms of image quality...wow, the colours from the Evolt are insainly crisp and true to life with no noticable noise at low ISO. Night time shots are pretty decent too, and compair pretty well with Rebel XT. Like all dSLR noise becomes an ...

I love the camera. Is doing what is supposed to do. I fell that reflex is going to die and will be replaced with EVF when they will make a good one. For now E500 is a good camera with good kit lenses. Even the E330 have a life view on LCD I am happy with the E500. Problems: The viewfinder is not showing 100% of the picture.
