Just got back from the local mega-camera store. Got me a 510 Dual kit. Camera looks awesome so far. Have to wait a while for the battery to fully charge so I can actually see what it does.

It's my first dSLR so I'll be spending some time on the learning curve in the next couple of weeks.

I choose between the 410 and the 510. In the end the 510 did feel a bit better in my hands, and with the added IS, you cannot ignore it. And it's not even that much bigger then the 410. It's still a pretty compact dSLR.

congrats
yep 410 is small
there are examples of pros elsewhere using 410 as a backup because of its smallness. But the 510 is the more conventional deal, and has a better feature suite.

Now Jeff has got his Oly 410 review out how about some activity from owners posting user views & photos from the 410/510.

Especially the 510 owners

I'd love thoughts and reviews

Congrats! Right now this MIGHT be one of my final two choices (been dealing with the SONY A100, Canon 30D, Nikin D40x, Nikon D80 and this one).

Haven't seen one yet, and I have to test drive it first before I can ultimately decide as it might be too small for my big hands.

Question though...the two kit lenses. Do they take 55mm filters or are they larger? While it's not a deal-breaker by any means, I am hoping that with whatever I decide upon that at least SOMETHING from my old film SLR (Canon AE-1 purchased in 1978) can be used on my new system. The lenses are out...NO digital SLRs use the Canon FD mount lenses, so all that's left are the carry cases, lense cases, and filters.

Sorry, but both kit lenses are 58mm filter threads.
