    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Read reviews at dpreview.com, then go to the store and check them out for yourself. Only you can decide. Remember that once you buy a camera, you buy a lens system too, and you will be stuck with that if you make a big investment in lenses.

    And those 2 lenses that come with olympus are the only ones you'll have for a LOOONG time.

    Stick with canon. They have a much better selection of flashes, lenses and bodies. Olympus is experimental and nobody knows if it's going to be around for long.

    This is how many lenses you have for canon:

    You can also mount on canon all of the nikon lenses:

    And a whole lot of m42 lenses, which are good and cheap.

    This is all you have for olympus:

    The ones below 300 are crud. The ones above 500 are ridiculously expensive and it's cheaper to buy canon versions of them.

    2 noobs who only tried one camera will tell you that they're in love with olympus.

    it's all in what you need if you need a camera that will be with you for 100k + shots buy the canon if you need a camera that will be there for 5 or 6 years go with the other one
