Olympus E-520 and 50-200 f2.8 -3.5 review.

The images below are shot using Olympus E-520 with Zuiko Digital 50-200 f2.8-3.5

Focusing was fast. Exposure is good. but the problem is i did notice the picture did came out softer than i thought i should be..if i shoot it with e3 the 50-200 will give me sharp picture ..however on e520 if give a much overall softer feel..but the pros side is the image look more natural..

Therefore i recommend +1 sharpness if using normal mode in E-520

The picture below are unedited..no post processing.(double click on the image to enlarge)

Hi,
i have to say that images from the E520 generally are very soft.

This is weird, as the images are sharp in live preview with magnification - but are blurry when shot even in RAW.

All the best

hmm i have other similar user who complaint about the same issue..that is why i recommend a +1 sharpness setting or you sharpen it using adobe cs4 later..however i did test the e520 with 12-60 SWD and FL-50R and i get good results..
