Our Score:


A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. In some cases, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it to show the overall image quality. Some other pictures may be clicked to view the original full-size image.


With the 50-200mm f/2.8 lens the level of sharpness and detail is impressive. Click to download the full-sized image (4.5MB) or see the crop below.


This is a crop from the image above.


Exposure is generally right, with just a hint of underexposure to maintain highlight detail.

I was going to buy the E-510 as it has come down so much, but the features on the 520 seem worthy of serious consideration. I've read where some people complain the 520 does not deliver as sharp of pictures or as color saturated as the 510. Anybody heard anything about that?
