Digital SLR Camera: Nikon v Olympus
About to buy myself a new camera. Narrowed it down to a Nikon D70s or an Olympus E-500.
Brand loyalty (I've had an OM1 for almost 30 years), and cost, steer me towards the Olympus. None of my OM lenses will fit though, so I'll be starting over again. Price for kit with two zomm lenses ~ £560.00
The D70 might be a slightly better camera, maybe, but for amateurs like me either would be more than good enough. I happen to have a brand new, never fitted, eight year old Nikon 70-300 AF lens sitting on the shelf at home (it's a long story) which sweetens the Nikon choice somewhat. Price for body and 14-70 zoom lens ~ £650
So photographers, opinions please. Help me choose.
