Olympus E-510 review

Value For Money

Worth Paying Extra For

The E-510 costs roughly £100 more than the E-410, regardless of whether you buy the single or twin lens kit. Given that the camera is largely the same (photographically speaking) this means you’re paying a £100 premium for Image Stabilisation. As this effectively converts any lens fitted to the camera into a ‘stabilised’ optic (including manual OM lenses) we say it’s worth every single penny.
