Had the chance to finally test out my new 510 yesterday and here are some of the results, the ZD 50mm macro was used for all of them.

DD, nice to see that the kit lens can do a decent macro. One of he reasons I got the 510 instead of the A100 is that I didn't want to be tempted by the myriad of relatively inexpensive lenses available for the A100.

Great, so now I'm being tempted by the expensive lenses that are the only ones available for the digital Olympus cameras.

The 50-200, the 14-54 and the 50mm macro probably are somewhere of in my future, unless I can convince myself that the kit lenses are as good as I can get as photographer...

Both posts above have lovely shots, thank you both.

Hi Guys

Some nice shots indeed - good macros and the 50mm looks pretty tack sharp. From all th e reviewers and user pics the 2 new kit lenses are very good indeed.

Troop, I'd kind of scratch the 14-54ZD of that list if the 12-60 is resonably priced and its got that what I think is a better focal range and OLy's SWD. Hopefully, the new lens will be even better than the 14-54ZD and as sharp as the 11-22mm and if thats the case it will be the mid-pro lens to have.

Cheers

Harj

:O :?

My lenses for the Oly510 are

Zuiko 14-42

Zuiko 40-150

Sigma 105 macro



I'm glad (also) that there are not a lot of lenses :-)for this cam.

These three are enough.



My "lens park" for Canon reaches from 10mm until 400mm. Also enough :roll:

hi satire23,

beautiful shots! what camera did yo have before? and did you have your macro lens at that time? if so did you compare the pictures from each camera with the same lens? what i was trying to find out is did you see adifference in the cameras?

thanks, john

John,

I have had the E-500 now for about 18 months and the 50mm macro for almost a year, the E-510 2 weeks.

Physical differences, the 510 has a better viewfinder than the 500, the IS is a big plus, Live View can be very useful for macro, and the buffer is much bigger and faster.

As for differences in picture quality, its hard to quantify as alot depends upon camera settings and the subject. I haven't used the 510 enough yet to get a good feel for it, but it seems to be easier to get better pics at low ISOs with the 500 andat high ISOs the 510 has a better image quality.
