Hi, Y'all-

I'm currently using an E-520 with a 14 - 54. I also have a 40-150 and an OM 200 f4 with adapter, but I don't use them much. Most of my photography is informal portraits, getting shots of people whitewater kayaking, or rappelling, or pictures of whatever looks photogenic on vacation trips.

I've grown dissatisfied with the pictures I'm getting. The focus is mostly correct, but sometimes it just doesn't happen. Even when it does focus the pictures are not always sharp. Image stabilization kind of works but has limitations. It sometimes picks the wrong thing to stabilize.

I dropped by a local camera store recently, and they suggested the C... EOS Rebel R7 with a kit lens that does the 35mm equivalent of 28 to 250. The salesman said he could sell me another Olympus, but it would be significantly more expensive and he didn't know how much longer Olympus would be around. The store also stocked Sony and Nikon, but he didn't try to push either of those on me.

So, my main question is whether this would be a good successor to the E-520, or whether there's something else out there that would fit the bill better. The store wants $1800 for the camera and lens. I'm sure I could get it for less on line, but the store includes a class explaining all the features of the camera. That might be nice, since I would be changing brands.

Thanks, Steve Goss
