Olympus E-500 / EVOLT E-500 review

Although the camera doesn't break any barriers, it does finally deal with the E-300's problem of low-light focusing & addresses some of the noise issue. The larger LCD almost balances out the tiny viewfinder.

I'm frustrated waiting for the E-3 & if it doesn't break any new ground like the E-1 did with the sensor-cleaner & the E-330 did with the live-preview, then I'll probably sell my Oly gear. The glass is top-quality. I just wish they made their bodies with the same level of quality & professionalism while keeping up to date with the basic technology of the present that ALL THE COMPETITORS have in their arsenals.
