Alas, I am on a budget and the camera fairy just isn't dropping off a camera! I am so very torn over this. The E-500 package I am looking at is $400 cheaper than the E-510 package. The only difference in packages is the camera body. The E-510 has cleaned up the noise at higher ISOs and added a live view finder (similar to the E-330). My main focus has been macro photos, but I am definitely going to be using this camera for all types of subjects and styles. Should I get the E-500 and look at buying glass or should I spend the extra now on the E-510 with the improvements Olympus has made?? Any insight is greatly appreciated!! :hail: I am so torn. I'd love to get the E-510 based on the great reviews I've read. This is also my first DSLR, but its going to have to last me for awhile and I don't want to end up frustrated if the E-500 has some issues. If anyone is curious what packages/features, here are the links to the two: E-500 E-510 Side-by-side comparison of E-500 & E-510 Thank you!!
