Cheers guys, given me some more things to ponder on. Don't know if thats good or bad. Just to clear one point up though. The E300 doen't suffer from shutter lag. Is that correct?
The longest part is focusing, so if you half-press the release in advance to focus and lock exposure, taking the picture is very fast. The E-300 is capable of 2.5 frames per second (up to four frames).
I just wanted to expand something I said...when I said, "up to four frames", I was thinking in RAW mode which is what I normally shoot in with my E-300...if you shoot in a JPEG mode, you can keep shooting on and on as long as you have a fast enough CF card that can keep up with the saving.

Well, I have plonked my money down on the E500. In the end I really couldn't justify the extra for the live view. If I need that for macro work I'll revert to the 8080. Plus its just another thing to go wrong. This way I also get two lenses to play with.

Thanks for answering my questions and don't worry I suspect there will be many more in the weeks to come.:lol:
