Olympus E-520 DSLR and two lenses for $540

If you have been looking for a way to get into Four Thirds without spending a fortunte, we have a great idea for you - the Olympus E-520 with two lenses for $540 with free shipping and handling. This is offered by 17th Street at Amazon.com.

This is a nice price, the two lenses you are getting are the standard two lenses that come in the kit, the 14-42mm and 40-150mm. Both are Four Thirds lenses, so you have to do the "times two" math to get the focal-range in terms of the 35mm world. So, basically, these would be 28-84mm and 80-300mm.

The E-520 has sensor-shift image stabilization, so just about any lens you attach to it, will give you the benefit of image stabilization. This usually a few stops of a light advantage in situations where stabilization can help. It's not a miracle cure, and you still need a tripod for certain situations. And no, it can't perform miracles. But it can certainly help you get a shot that otherwise may have been impossible!
