The 10-megapixel Olympus E-520 is the bigger brother of the E-420. The primary difference between the two is that the E-520 benefits from in-camera image stabilisation technology.
|Pros:||Superb handling, dust reduction, effective image stabilisation, consistent AWB.|
|Cons:||Power switch, highlight control, slow AF system with standard lenses.|
You'd be forgiven for thinking that the Four Thirds system has been around longer than its years. Having quietly celebrated its fifth birthday last year, the system has to date notched up 13 DSLR bodies and 37 lenses, with help from a range of manufacturers and the backing of an ardent supporter base.
Olympus has been at the forefront of this, most notably pioneering live view and its dust reduction system, technologies later adopted by other DSLR manufacturers for their own models. The E-520 features both of these, and also continues the evolution of the live view system.
