Philip Turner's review of Olympus E-500

“My Olympus E500 digital camera gave me near perfect...”


written by Philip Turner on 04/04/2006

Good Points
First impressions - excellent build, feel, materials. It is superb when in use, and the results are outstanding.

Bad Points
Full manual on CD (not printed).
No focus scale on lenses - drive by wire.
Not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

General Comments
My Olympus E500 digital camera gave me near perfect results in good and bad light, and with a FL36 flash under flash conditions.

It feels built to last, has a well balanced feel, and it has straight forward menus. Great lens definition on both standard (14-45mm) and 40-150mm lenses. No aberrations noted either chromatic or distortion at wide angle - there may be some if examined in an optical lab, but I don't notice it in critical results.

A class act.
