Still going strong
 
I see the bundle that got me into digital is now worth less than 100 quid!
Mine is still working hard.
Although it does share a stable with an E1 and a recently acquired epl5

Talking to a friend who went Canon :mad: his original camera has had to be binned because the sensor went pixilated. The original Oly sensors are still giving super results.
The only problem I have ever had was with my E300, on which the shutter finally failed at 58,000, not bad as the quoted was 25,000.
Quality indeed.

Although my kit is only a few years old some of my MFT lenses have halved in value and soon I won't be able to give away my E-M5, not that I want to as its a brilliant piece of kit.

It is good to hear your E-520 is still up and running. Mine has been retired to the collection along with my Minolta Maxxum 7D and silver bodied Sony A100.

My first digicam was the Canon Powershot G2 and cost me 650
Saw one on ebay a while back for 15 :D
I'll be keeping it for sentimental reasons

My Pany G3 fully boxed with spare batteries only sold for 75 about a year ago and was only a couple of years old, my G5 wouldn't sell so I traded it in and only got 100 for it, fully boxed, spare batteries etc. Digital camera bodies lose value very quickly.
