Dusted off the old E-500
3

Literally!  Thought I'd give the old girl an outing today, quite a different 'user experience' after using the E-5 and E-M1.  All with the 500 and 12-60, comments and criticism appreciated.

Absolutely beautiful!  Love the look of the Kodak sensor!  The E-500 is ideal weight and size for longer treks as well.

Colors are sooooooo nice on the E-300/E-500 cams...

I love my E-300 a little bit more...for the build quality and viewfinder size...but the E-500 is the one that goes on longer hikes.

Here is one of my E-500 shots:

The Kodak sensor was really good! It was silky smooth with beautiful Oly colors. It sucked on low light, but for this - it's perfect! The E-510 and future generations came along and it was no longer the same with that generation of panasonic sensors. Don't get me wrong, I like my E-30, but it didn't have teh same look.

Thank you Thomas.  That's a corker of a shot!  One thing I'll say for the E-500 viewfinder; it's uncluttered!   They did have lovely sensors for good light, though.

Yes, they all have their advantages and disadvantages, and their own distinctive 'look'.  Too bad you couldn't roll 'em all into one sensor, eh?

Yeah, I know it feels "different" from what is currently available...

...but you've got to admit that the colors that this baby produces are awesome, aren't they!  I think the E-500 was one of the most underrated cameras ever to hit the market.  Put good glass on it and it can give many a current model camera a run for its money in overall looks, richness of the colors, etc.

Nice pics....

Re: Dusted off the old E-500

I read posts like this and then immediately go to KEH to see what's available. I had a 500 once for a weekend, but it arrived with a cracked lcd so it went back. I've always been tempted to get another, just can't help it...
