I am loving my new E-500 camera. This is my second digital camera and the photos I have been getting have been great. I have put a 6G micodrive in the camera and just go out and shoot. Most of the photo has been indoors and I have very little problem with noise. Started out looking at the Canon Rebel and did not like the feel of the camera and the photos I took all had dust on them. The dust removal system on the Oly is a BIG selling point and the unit as a whole heel like a quality camera when you hold it. The Canon had a cheap feel to it.

I bought the E-500 in November 2005 and so far am quite pleased. The unit possesses a solid feel and handles well. The menu controls are easy to navigate and with only a little practice are quick to find.

I recommend purchasing either the FL 36 or FL 50 flash units as the onboard popup is inadequate except for very short distances. Using fill flash in daylight condtions has resulted in some beautiful exposures. You can dial down the light intensityon either of the external flash units.

I have noticed that in wide angle landscapes, the overall image is a little on the soft side; not sure if this is inate with this particular camera or if it's my own unfamiliarity with digital picture taking.

I love this camera so far.
