I agree, the OLYMPUS double kit lens solution is surely better.

Hmmm ... for the price you pay for it.

I got the full starter kit for £600
That includes
- Body
- 2 lenses
- Bag with snug space
- UV filters
(Had the CF card lying around from eos 350d days ... )


If I were living in an ideal world ... had all the money to
burn ... It would have been an EOS 5D with the 17-85 IS
to start with.

Sigh ... I do not live in an ideal world.

But hey ... my E 500 covers up for all that now.

Cheers,

It certainly looks like it. :-)

The 18 - 70 mm Nikkor lens, that comes with the Nikon D70s, is just as great
Some of the other Nikon kits are pretty good as well. The 55-200 is good enough that overall the Nikon 2 lens kit might be right there alongside the Olympus.

I haven't tried it myself. But I read it on Ken Rockwell's
site. He opines that you can always put the lens on MF
but disabling auto focus from camera is a bad idea because
its almost always impossible to achieve accurate manual
focus.

He might be wrong ...

But on E 500 ... you can achieve WYSIWYG manual focus.
(Except that when u are in dimly lit situation ... the viewfinder
comes in the way )

I'm a bit confused about sensor sizes. I understand that the FZ50 is way smaller than the Oly 500, but is there compensation with their different set ups?
