Significantly refined over its predecessors, the Olympus E-520 offers an excellent set of features in a small package.
It's not as small as the E-420, but it has what it takes to get you sharper pictures: namely, a bigger grip and built-in image stabilization. The E-520's Live View mode is improved, with several autofocus options to choose from, a 10x zoom to confirm focus, and a Face Detect mode to help the camera confirm focus for you. Overall, Live View AF is faster than before, at least in good light, better tuned to deliver sharp pictures with less shutter lag.
Paired with the 14-42mm kit lens, the Olympus E-520 covers most common shooting situations with ease with good image quality and light weight, not to mention a small overall size. Click here to read more about the Olympus E-520, a great choice for the photography hobbyist.
