I got a new Olympus E520... purchased on Black Friday from Amazon... I don't think it was a "Black Friday Deal" but it only cost $460. I know $460 is still a decent chunk of change, but it's a lot cheaper than it's costing right now on Amazon (~$550ish).
I haven't had a ton of time to play with it cuz research has been killer... I have 1 week to finish a lot of work and have results...
We'll see what happens... Go Bears!
Expect a ton of photos in about.... 2 weeks time :)
