With just the right combination of features and a mature set of lenses, the Olympus E-510 gives the Four-Thirds system a strong contender in the ongoing battle of the digital SLRs.
No longer trying to forge new body shapes, Olympus has crafted the E-510 to fit the hand well and lead the pack with innovative features. While matching the competition's standard specs of a 10 megapixel sensor, 2.5 inch LCD, and 3.1 frames per second, they've included their second generation Live View technology and sweetened the deal with sensor-shift image stabilization. As the Olympus E-410 wooed us with is svelte figure, the E-510 set about making better quality images and proving itself a fit rival for a place in your bag. As with all cameras, there are a few issues, but we were most impressed with the Olympus E-510's edge-to-edge image sharpness, thanks to the good quality kit lens; and its high ISO shots fared well against larger sensor designs. Live View, for its part, can easily be misunderstood, but its virtues are worth discovering, and make the E-510 a compelling choice for the creative photographer.
