E-500 two lens kit buyers. Some of the kits went out with a 17.5-45 lens not the 14-45 as promoted or posted on the box. Olympus is aware, and I'm waiting for my replacement lens. Other than that, the camera is great!!!!


I hope that my standard kit comes with the 17.5-45 instead of the 14-45. I already have another 14-45, and the deal I got from Dell made it cheaper to buy the kit than the body alone. Plus the 17.5 has 52mm threads instead of the 58mm threads of the 14-45 (I have about 20 or so 52mm filters and the new 35mm macro has 52mm threads).


The 17.5-45 lens is only supposed to be sold in Europe and not in the US. I haven't heard of anyone in the US getting the 17.5-45.

Update from Olympus....The 17.5-45 will be offered as part of the Costco "discounted" price.

Well I FINALLY found an E-300 here to look at. I'm sold. I believe I will be buying the E-500 this weekend when my gift card comes. I'll have to order it online since best buy does not have it in store.

I kept going back and forth between the D70 and the Rebel. But after holding the Olympus it felt more comfortable to me- plus you can't beat that kit price.

I'm stoked!

resurrecting a very old thread. new E500 owner here. thanks for all the helpful links to the lens adapter site. time to go raid my dad's old camera bins....

FWIW, the 35mm macro lens can be had for less than $200 at many online shops. I think they are in short supply or are close to being discontinued, as Zuiko lenses almost never go on sale.

i picked one up from a local camera shop for $220, plus a $15 Oly rebate, so $205 net.

I about fell over when you said the E-300 has a mirror lockup with the firmware update. I have the firmware updated but can't find the lockup feature. Can someone tell me where to find it?

hit menu > select the icon with the camera2 > ANTI-SHOCK > select 1 to 30 seconds

The ANTI-SHOCK setting is the last item under the camera2, but just go up past card setup & it is the next one.

Remember to set back to off or you'll miss a shot. I use it even when I really don't need the vibration reduction as the self timer.

edit to add:

I'm at work & don't have the link, but there are some hacks with the E-300 that allow ISO 50, total shutter count, and the total number of times the anti-dust sensor has shaken.
