    I read that almost everyone uses either a Canon or Nikon. I bought the Olympus e-510 with the 2 lenses and was wondering how many others have this camera? Also wondering what othe lenses you might have got for it.

    at one point i wanted this camera, but i am so happy i went with a nikon d70. Im sorry but the lens selection in 4/3rds is not only sparse but expensive.

    I have the E-510/14-42 mm and no immediate plans for more lens :)

    The deciding factor for me was the live view for studio shots, I'm "training" myself to use the viewfinder more though and am still happy with my decision.

    4/3 system and expensive lens is not a problem, you do get what you pay for.....

    Cheers, Don.

    I just noticed this thread. I bought the E-510 with the 2 lens kit and am loving it. I have had it for maybe 2 weeks now but the results are very good. I am practicing on my nephews and nieces as family photography is what I bought the camera for.

    As for lenses I am on the hunt for a nice 11-22 ZD lens or if I feel rich their 12-60 ZD lens. When the kids get into soccer and whatnot I will spring for the 50-200 SWD lens. It isn't a cheap hobby but it sure is fun :).

    I brought a O-E510 about two weeks ago. I did some research and comparison and decided the 510 was right for me.

    Funny this thread should come up again :)

    Two months ago I said I had no immediate plans for more lenses, well....

    I upgraded from the 14-42, 3.5 - 5.6 to the 14-54, 2.8 - 3.5 and bought a 40-150, 3.5 - 4.5....

    I've also noticed that I'm using the live view now mostly for indoor studio shots.

    Very happy with my choice of camera.

    Cheers, Don

    I have the E-500. Is the E-510 a newer camera? I really do like Olympus... I've noticed that the colors come out very vivid and the camera will capture detail in bad light that many other brands won't capture.
