I like very much the colors that E-500 produces (more yellow than usual). I was wandering if is this the case with E-330 since that one uses a different ccd (panasonic). Does 330 gives the same colors as 500? I mean just out of the camera and not after-proccesing.
If you ask why I do not buy the E-500 I have to say that I tried the camera and I found the viewfinder too small. I do not know if I 'll use to use it...

The prices I found are: 690 euros for E-500 with double lens kit, 650 for E-330 with 14-45 lens, and 830 for E-330 with double lens kit.
Please help!

Ask yourself if you want LIVE VIEW...if so your only choice is the E-330.

I just want to be sure that the colors that E-330 produces are not diferent than those of e-500. Color is more important than liveview for me!

I don't own the E330 but my guess is that colors will bevery similar if not the same. Both cameras let you adjust the basic exposure color intensisy and have sttings for "natural". The philosophy for DSLRs is not to show enhanced colors but to reproduce what is there.

It comes down the live view and if you would find it useful. I PROBANLY would get the E-500, but then again maybe not. I have an E-300 as a second camera to my E-1 and I like the E-300 type styling.

I don't think you'll go wrong either way.
