4.0 out of 5 stars Picture This, 14 Sept. 2009
I'm new to the DSLR market having just upgraded from a compact digital. My problem was deciding which camera to go for; all the photography magazines gave similar ratings for the entry level cameras I could afford. Narrowing it down to two models, I plumped for the e520 and am I pleased I did.

I'm not in a position to compare this with anything else because I simply don't know. What I do know is that it's light and accessible, with all the buttons, switches and knobs falling easily to hand. I like the live view for the ability it gives to compose your scene beforehand and the pictures it takes are excellent. The ability to take photos in monochrome and other assorted modes is good. (Other, more experienced photographers, may mention things like 'noise' and 'RAW' but the market this camera is aimed at won't really be that bothered about such things - and, like me, I doubt they'd be able to tell the difference unless it's pointed out?) Yes, the number of extra lenses available is nowhere near that of other manufacturers, but again, the supplied kit lens and maybe another two would be ample for those whom buy this.

Not only is this a great DSLR, but I shopped around and found it in Curry's for £320 and got a 4GB CF card and camera case thrown in, but not literally, which brings the price below £300 in effect. (It's being discontinued in that chain, so you'll get a good deal.)
