There's nothing wrong with the E-500 (has the Kodak sensor), while it may have been superseded by lots of newer models, it's still quite capable.

There's a photo on another 4/3 forum that was taken on a camera phone, and as someone commented, it just goes to prove it's the photographer not the camera........
Well I can think of the OM 24mm f2, 28mm f2 and Vivitar 28mm f1.9 off the top of my head but I'm sure there are others I've forgotten.
It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.
