Cureently provide best value with twin-lens kit. Well built, small lenses and I.S. IQ is good too. However if you shoot lot of indoor photos than Pentax K10D, K100D, or Nikon D40/40x will be better choice..

If you're going for an 'upgrade' rather than just getting a new camera with a bigger sensor and two lenses, you need to think carefully about the camera system you're buying into. Olympus cameras are good, but as they have the 4:3 system with 2x magification you'll have to buy their own brand lenses. With Canon or Nikon you get the option of adding less expensive third party lenses from Sigma and Tamron etc. If you're happy with the Olympus kit lens option then no problem. Just be absolutely certain you don't really need a Canon 40D (handle one alongside the Olympus). Ergonomics are both highly subjective and massively important with DSLRs and can affect the performance you get out of them..

Actually, Sigma makes several lenses for the 4/3rds cameras..

Not exactly accurate..

Sigma also has lenses for 4/3 and Tamron is "re-evaluating" getting into the 4/3 market according to some things that I have read..

The ability to buy good third party lenses would help bost the sales of Olympus DSLRs. How do the present Sigma 4:3 prices compare?.

In my opinion, a big part of the reason to choose Canon or Nikon is the ability to use their lenses, which are often superior to third-party options (though sometimes more expensive)..

Try holding a Nikon D80. You may find it much easier to hold than smaller cameras. Or, you may find it too large. Try them out...

Consider the Pentax K10d with a 18-250 lens (Tamron or Pentax) You should feel very familiar with that setting. You might also consider the K100d, but it might get you upset with it's slow AF in low light.'Attitude is a little thing that can make big differences'.

Before I moved from my "prosumer" (Konica Minolta A200) to DSLR I also considered the OLY E500. However as 90% of my photography is landscape work I preferred the 3/2 sensor ratio and went for a Samsung GX10 (Pentax K10D clone) - so far I'm extremely impressed, the weather sealing has been quite useful on a couple of occasions.

They are somewhat less expensive then the OLY in general but are not equal to the OLY top end glass. There are not any 1 to 1 comaprisons. Just look at B and H or Adorama and look for the type lens you are looking for..

In general I can say the OLY Kit Glass is VERY good quality and you may not want or need another lens particularly for just general shooting of kids and family..
