What did you replace it with?

I haven't replaced it with anything--yet. I already own a Canon EOS 30D, along with a half-dozen Canon lenses, none over 85mm. The purchase of the E-510 was financed by the sale of a Canon 17-55mm f2.8 EF-S IS. It was a wonderful performer, but too big and heavy for my tastes. Now that Canon has announced its spring rebates, I'm tempted to get a 17-40mm f4, but the truth is I'm doing just fine with what I already own. I still miss the E-510 though. Despite its shortcomings it was a fun little camera.

You may really want to try an e-520 then. The sensor and DR are indeed improved by about 1/2 a stop, from my e-420 tests vs the e-410, and the camera will have a lot of little tweaks that together add to a lot.

Hi Gordon,
I happened across your site when it was mentioned on dpreview and your parting with your E-510. I enjoyed reading some of your other commentary about photography. I look forward to reading some more articles here on your site.

Congratulations on some nice work here.


If you are looking for a replacement for traveling. Get Nikon D40 with 18-200 VR. It is unbeatable.
