    People,

    What could you sincerely say about Olympus E510?

    The price offered is really good these days...
    Moreover, I have E-300, and alltogether like it. I would prefer a camera
    with higher ISO though.
    Should I go for the price/quality ratio yet again? Especially now that I
    have some Four Thirds lenses already?
    Or bite the bullet and buy Canon 40D which is really amazing?

    Thanks,
    SB

    I went from the E330 to the E510 and am extremely happy and satisfied
    with the purchase. I also have several Olympus lenses and flashes -
    just got the 12-60 BTW - and did not wish to change brands. I have
    been very happy with my Olympus DSLRs over the years - still think
    they produce the best color of any of the major players.
    The improvements from the E300/330 to the E510 (better high ISO,
    better and faster AF, more MP, more comfortable handling at least for
    me) were well worth the upgrade.

    Thanks. Interesting. I would agree about the color - if you shoot Raw
    though.
    JPEG is more attractive with Canons and Nikon.
    And again, 40D can go as high as 3200 ISO... The only one available today I
    believe.

    My son-in-law shot professionally for newspapers with Nikon (just
    switched to Canon) and from what I saw of his JPEGs I would disagree
    completely. They both - at least to my eyes - have good and bad points
    to their color, but overall I think (and my son-in-law agreed) that
    Olympus JPEGs out of the camera were better.
    I believe (don't have the camera so it is just from what I have read)
    that the Oly E3 also goes to 3200.
