    I can't draw any conclusions by looking at the overlays of the sensor sizes since bridge cameras use the real small sensors but their viewfinder display size is much, much bigger. Sorta like viewing...

    Eric & Dayna,

    Like you both, I too am interested in the E510 and K10D. Primarily because both use sensor shift IS in the body which allows the IS to work regardless of the lens I would put on...

    Live Histograms

    1. Which DSLRs about $2000 or less for body and one or two lenses, have "live" histogram capability besides the Olympus E410 and E510 cameras? I do want image stabilization in the lens or body.
