Oly E520

This is a good camera for its price and category. Imho Olympus colours are unbeatable. I bought a 14-54 mm for it as I wanted a good lens. Biggest hussle with this camera are the AF and the viewfinder. Liveview is of no interest to me. This viewfinder is too small and one has really to strain one's eye to make the most out of it. But once you're used to it it's OK . I was so disappointed with the AF that I thought of returning the camera but eventually I decided to turn it off and shoot everything in Manual. A bit difficult at first then it gets better and faster. This is for me the only way to get really sharp pics out of the E520 without having to spend the night on PP.
