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.

Re: Still going strong
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.

Re: Still going strong
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.
