Re: E-520 Arrival

I saw the 9-18 quoted at $600..

Hmm. Decisions. I think the 11-22 is a very very nice lens, but it feels too big and heavy on my E400.

Should I sell it to buy this new one in the autumn? Don't know, the jury is out until I see a review of the 9-18.

With the 2 kit lenses it would complete a nice lightweight travel set I guess...

There is a lot of supposition on sites like DPReview suggesding that as a price band for the lens

See http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/re...hread=27911811 for instance

Re: E-520 Arrival

I have just bought one-body only as I have lens from my E 330 so can interchange. Not been out with it yet but will post a picture off before long.

It feels good and with IS I will use it mostly with my 40-150 lens.

Paddy.
