Olympus Evolt E-500

PC Magazine reviews Olympus Evolt E-500 and concludes with editor rating of 4 out of 5 that Olympus Evolt E-500 is a full-featured D-SLR that offers lots of options for novices, prosumers, and even pros. It’s a worthy alternative to the Nikon D50, current Editor’s Choice, and the Canon Rebel XT, but not quite good enough to replace them. Olympus Evolt E-500 is a very good entry-level D-SLR that falls just shy of greatness.

TrustedReviews concludes with overall rating of 9 out of 10 that E-500 should secure Olympus a place on the lucrative consumer D-SLR shelf alongside the Nikon D50, Canon EOS 350D and Pentax *ist DL. It is a very well designed camera, combining excellent picture quality, outstanding performance and lots of creative versatility, while still maintaining beginner-friendly simplicity and easy handling. It is a genuine pleasure to use, and produces superb results. If you’re looking for a good SLR for under $600 with a lens, then it should definitely be on your shortlist.
