Olympus E-500 / EVOLT E-500 review

Time to update this after a couple of months heavy use.

I've become accustomed to the cramped viewfinder and live with the noise at high ISOs. I've outgrown the none too wonderful 14-45, which is as bad as the other cheap kit lenses from competitors (you simply cannot have a dSLR with a fine wide to mile telephoto lens at this price point).

The 40-150 is a fine lens, and a bargain.

In the meantime every day I appreciate more and more the fine ergonomics, light weight and predicatable behaviour.

This an exceptionally fine camera at any price. For the money, it is a steal.
