I'm salivating over the Olympus Evolte E-500 (link

here, photo above). I want a digital SLR with multiple lenses. The particular package I'm looking at comes with a 14-45mm lens and a 40-150 lens. This camera is great because it fits well in my hand, and has lots of features. I've read review after review, and the vast majority are glowing.

Olympus Stylus 500 (a gift from SO a few years ago), and I absoultely love it. It's a great camera (photo above). It's really the cause for my photography obsession.

My old-school Nikon EM (above) has taught me a lot about apertures and lighting and all sorts of fun stuff. I love that camera too. Since I'm still learning, though, and I don't have access to a darkroom, I end up wasting a lot of film on photos that aren't quite right. And developing a whole roll of film for 1-2 good pictures is expensive (and disappointing).

I thought I wanted a Nikon D-70 after years of admiring Heather's photos on dooce.com. Once I got it in my hands, though, it felt bulky and unmanageable. It takes great shots, and I'd probably get used to the bulkiness, but I picked up the Olympus and liked it so much better.

So, that's my camera story. If I can get a nice chunk of overtime pay over the next couple of months, perhaps I can buy my camera AND go to Mexico in the spring. Wink

    Yikes. Those are the heavy cannon of dSLRs though.

    I'm tempted to pick up a digital camera myself (Canon, either Powershot, or their pricier prosumer G series), but... the ones you're looking at scares me. Big Grin

    I'm waiting for the right time to buy a digital camera... I love taking photograph and hope that one day, I'll get the chance to take classes and make beautiful pictures =D. That'll be so great. But the problem now is that I know nothing on camera... So it's going to hard for me to choose the one that best suit me.
