By Jamie Harrison



Our Score:


Here are some general test shots to help evaluate the camera's overall image quality, including the zoom range of the lens. Some pictures may be clicked to download the full size original image.


Tone, colour and contrast are good in good lighting, but could do with a boost of contrast in flatter conditions.


IS mode 2 works effectively on horizontal panning shots.


The new IS mode 3 is designed for vertical panning and also does a good job.

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?
