Back in 2007 I purchased my first DSLR (Olympus e-500) and shot the heck out of it learning the ins and outs of photography. I upgraded in 2009 and then gave the e-500 to my sister-in-law to try her hand at photography. Last night (she's in town visiting with us) she decided that she was done with the e-500 (as she's upgraded as well) and returned it back to me. I know it's old, and I only have the kit 14-42 for it, but I can't wait to shoot with it a little bit. However, the big plan for it is to let my 8 yr old take ownership of it (to replace her little point and shoot). Can't wait for the tutoring process to begin.
