This August, I said goodbye to my well loved camera equipment. I have been a fan of the Olympus DSLR 4/3rds system and have valued the exceptional quality of their lenses, both kit and prime, in the last 12 years. The e-500 and the e-520 have been great workhorses and have accompanied me on my travels in my ‘digital SLR years’ after the c-5050 zoom, a fixed lens digital camera. (Still rates as one of the best ever lenses on a fixed lens camera).
The trade in was easy and has enabled me to transition to a Canon DSLR body with a Tamron lens. So far, the switch is a positive one but there is a little sadness in leaving behind a system to which I had become accustomed and having to learn new dials, settings and options. In time, the new set up will grow and I will learn the details – thankfully taking pictures is just the same….just need to get better at composition and light!!
