I know these questions are asked a billion times here, but here's one more... I have never owned an SLR (film or digital). I want to have a larger zoom than is possible in a typical digital camera so I can take photos of sporting events and venues that my son and I travel to (we go on an annual baseball road trip - this year to Boston and NYC). I found a good price on the E-500 with the two lens kit for $599. I was also looking at the D40, but it comes with one lens for the same price. The Olympus comes with a 35mm equivalent 28-90mm (with included 14-45mm lens) or 80mm-300mm (with included 40-150mm lens). I think that will be enough for me for now. I know most will say, "Look at the lenses and not the camera as you will buy lenses once and several bodies," but I am not really looking to buy a ton of glass. In any case, whatever lenses I see myself buying are available from Olympus or Sigma. I may get a Sigma 135-400 f/4.5-5.6 later. I guess what I want to know is if there is any significan disadvantage to buying a four-thirds camera or the Evolt in particular. I know little about them, but do not want to make a $600 mistake. I like the feel of the Evolt and think the included lenses - which I understand are very nice quality kit lenses - will work well for me and provide a possible upgrade path with available lenses. Opinions?
