All in all, the Olympus E-510 is a very good D-SLR camera.
It has a nice and solid build, good image quality and it is easy to use. In addition, the camera is fairly compact, it features Live View, and is part of the FourThirds System so that you can mount a large number of lenses. One of these is the ultra wide-angle zoom lens that was included in our test. This Zuiko Digital 7-14mm performs better than we ever could have expected from such a wide-angle zoom lens. You do have to shell out quite a bit for it, but in return you get a gem of a lens.
