     That's a damned good price.  I paid US$800 for that kit at Costco when it 
first came out.

     The E-500 is my primary field camera, and may very likely remain so as 
I've become very familiar with it.  The only thing it lacks is the ability to 
use a wired remote.  I did recently get an E-510 and E-520 body, so maybe I'll 
become equally familiar with those.

     It has the same 8MP Kodak KAF-8300CE CCD sensor as the E-300.  The E-510 
and E-520 have 10M MOS sensors.  Wikipedia has a nice page on the E-500:

>I searched the list, and some purport that the E-500 uses the same MOS sensor

>I've got an E-3 and an E-300. What does an E-500 get me that those don't do?
