I was asked about my new camera......
Pam asked which camera I just bought (it arrived this afternoon), and I thought I'd post separately about it.
I got a DSLR, the Olympus E-520. It's one of the "four-thirds" models that Olympus is putting out. I'm not sure what 4/3 means, exactly, except that the cameras are smaller and feature superior optics.
I had decided against buying a DSLR right now, but I've been hanging around the DPReview forums while I waited for the price on my next Panasonic superzoom to come down, and I kept running across gorgeous pictures taken by the E-520. Granted, some of them were taken with $1,000+ lenses, but still..... :-)
Since the 520 has been replaced by the 620, the price was a real bargain. I bought it from Amazon with two lenses. I'm trying not to think about more lenses at this time, but I see a real potential for lens addiction. Thank heavens I tend to be frugal.
Anyway, it's been a long time since I've used an SLR, and never a digital one, so this will be a learning experience. I'm excited!
