(this is posted in buying a new camera forum as well, just wanted to get the most possible responses)
just wanted to say first off, this site is a great resource for my dslr research i have been recently obsessed with.
now, onto business
i have recently retired my ancient olympus om-1
and am going to get a dslr. the om-1 was like a tank, never had an issue, so i am a little partial to olympus's. i pretty much have my heart set on the e510. all the features and specs are very compelling (i have read gordons review a million times
i will mostly be doing landscape and dabble in some macro photos, with some portrait/family (i recently became a dad).
the thing i am concerned about is the debate over the four thirds system. i have heard some good things, but some of the articles i have read about the system state it is a disadvantage because its not as versatile or adaptable.
from my understanding, the four thirds system is developed by olympus and it allows complete digital lenses etc. i have searched this forum for a definitive pros/cons of the four thirds system, but to no avail.
if someone has the time, could they explain the system a little more in depth ( i have been to four-thirds.org, but its a little biased).
if not the e-510 then i am leaning towards the d60 which my father just bought, so i will have a chance to play around with that this easter weekend
anyways, sorry for the long winded post, but this is an important decision that needs to be made! thanks again all
