I just wanted to add something to zig's post.

What makes a good portrait shot really is independent of the brand of gear you use. So, don't limit yourself to only Oly people or photos for inspiration. I'm a huge proponent of the genre sections on this forum. If you like to shoot portraits for example - you can learn more from a Nikon portrait photographer than you can from an Oly photographer that doesn't shoot portraits.

Hey John,

I couldn't agree more with your statement. That's why I recommended Dave running a search for the particular type of photography he was interested in rather than running an Olympus search.

Having said that, in Dave's original post, he asked openly how good the E-500 actually was and what people thought of it. I thought it appropriate to start off by showing an example of what others have done with the same camera given that they learned its capabililties and theuse ofthe appropriate lens.
