    I think any of those cameras you mentioned would do what you want. It depends on your budget. Generaly Canons are costly especially when trying to get a good lens for portraits. Olympus w/50mm macro can do wonders for half the price and weight.

    Pete, two of the important things I missed mentioning about testing the Olympus and the Canon is that the Oly's in body IS is much more effective than the Canon's lens IS in every single shot I took. Olympus also rules when it comes to color deepness and saturation as well as accuracy without being overwhelming. Canon like Nikon tend to have reddish overcast. That Canon is going back to where it came from tomorrow.

    Guys, I'd like to take all the criticism I stated above of Olympus back. Yesterday I got the Canon XSi and didn't like it at all compared to my Oly E-510. Canon's images are soft by default and when I tweaked the settings in every way you can imagine, I still didn't get what I easily get with the 510. I read many positive reviews about the Canon therefore I decided to give it a try so I won't be missing on something good. That Canon kit lens is a genuine piece of garbage, to replace it with decent lens/s you have to spend a fortune. Even when I compared Canon's praised dynamic range with Oly's side by side images, shockingly I found that Oly's DR is way ahead. Canon users, you don't know what you're missing and camera reviewers such as CNET and others on camera manufacturers payroll...(you know yourselves out there) kiss my A..!

    I think this review is overly enthusiastic. The "SAT" feature that was praised is nothing but in-camera editing similar to the "Auto Smart Fix" in my Photoshop Elements which defuses the highlights and brightens the shadows and in the process it increases the noise in shadows and makes it visible even at ISO 100, besides using that feature slows the camera for about one minute between pictures. You can examine the shadow areas of the original file of the building with reflection to see what I'm talking about.
    When it comes to the Dynamic Range, it might has been improved from the E-510 (I cannot be judge of that yet) but it still not in bar with other cameras of the same class.
    It seems that Olympus tries to do quick fixes of faults caused by a small sensor that is not coping with advancements well and without addressing the roots of the problem.
