Olympus E-500 the 8 MP camera that could ! Keep up with the more noted brands, now in the period when apples were apples, it’s no wonder choices were challenged. the selling factor was to purchase a camera with two lense, the 14 to 45mm along with the 45 to 150 mm lens with body, all one needed was a CF card and away you go ! had it not been for the newer E-510 coming with image stabilization within the camera body, so I bought the newer version body only and ordered the 75 to 300 lens, and kept the E-500,here it’s used with the 25 to 150 mm lens, no ffilters ! because if it hadn’t been told , Who would know ! with as many Hot air Balloons photographs in my collection, it’s a pain in the arce having to go back and retreive the camera data, because so and so just wanted to know ! but than again, wouldn’t it be nice to rent the camera, before the investment made, added to, it’s a commitment to the brand, the other plus, is that once one is commited, the investment is in the added lenses, they are less expensive considering that the image stabilization is with the camera body! It’s not difficult if one knows what they need, says this ole’ film guy that I know personally ! Albuquerque, New Mexico USA. Balloon Fiesta 2007.
