I know what you mean re. film being easier. I got the body and 2 lenses from my Dad for free and am enjoying shooting it. I am looking forward to getting a DSLR soon though and want to get the best of both worlds. I have seen debates re. the Nikon vs. Olympus. So far, I have yet to see an actual review that holds out any issues with the e510. Instead, I have seen lots of brand loyalty claims that one is better than another, etc. I know the temptation to say, X brand is better because that is what I have. Then again, maybe I am missing the poor reviews.

I am just flummoxed that the camera continues to get review scores as good if not better than the alternatives suggested (Nikon D40 is a common alternative which scores less than the e510), but people still try to caution me about it. Most often, it is suggest to go with Nikon or Canon because they sell more. For me, sales volume isn't the only consideration. But, like I said, please let me know if you have some really negative reviews or issues that I ought to be aware of.
