Default Help me decide between a Dimage 5 and an Olympus E-10....

To come right to the point I have to decide between purchasing a Minolta Dimage 5 and an Olympus E-10.

The E10 costs about $300.00 more then the Dimage 5.

Is it worth it or better yet, how can I justify the cost?

Thanks

Dave

Default D5 or E10

I think you should look at lot further into this. My understanding is that the D5 was discontinued because it was a problematic failure, but the E10 was highly regarded, even more than its successor the E20.
However I have not owned either camera, I just try to keep up to date with the news and reviews. I would have thought that if you could put up with the size and weight of the ugly E10, that would be far and away the better camera, in a totally different class.

Don't limit your choice too much, have a look at the Nikon 5700.

But of those 2 the E10 wins easily.
