Compare the Olympus EVOLT E-520 to the Canon EOS 450D Rebel XSi DSLR


The Canon EOS 450D and the Olympus E-520 both feature contrast-based auto focus and 3.5fps continuous shooting. But to its advantage, the Canon also features :

  • Two extra Megapixels,
  • a larger 3in LCD screen
  • a bigger viewfinder
  • 14-bit image processing
  • PC remote control software which comes with live on-screen preview

The Olympus E-520’s main selling points include :

  • its built-in image stabilization which will work with any lens you attach. This is the primary selling point of the Olympus.
  • reviews show the the E-520's anti-dust system is very effective, although it is only slightly better compared to the Canon
  • the E-520 is cheaper, but with anything, prices can change


In summary, reviews show the two models are very similar with the Canon having a slight edge. Each has its pros and cons. It can come down to which feels and looks better to you.
