    Got my e510 and the 25mm pancake out.
    Forgot how much I love the draw of this sensor and lens.
    In-Camera B&W, no Post Processing.

    Compared to the current state-of-the-art that seemed like such an unforgiving sensor at times, but still compelling. The "unmeasurable" component of image quality, I think.

    That is indeed why I love B&W with it. in many ways it draws like my GRD first gen.

    Is that the same sensor as the early m43? (like the EP1)? I loved that sensor, except the DR.

    Not quite, the E-510 had a 10mp sensor. It was the second version of the Panasonic "Live MOS" sensors (the first being the 7.5mp unit found in the E-330 and L1). IIRC, the E-P1 had more DR than the E-510! The E-510 was the last model to come out before Olympus went through a brief phase of employing heavier AA-filters in their cameras.

    The light AA filter is likely part of the reason I enjoy this camera so.
