    Default Advice needed

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to dslr and bought myself a 2nd hand olympus E-510 comes with 2 lenses a wide angle and zoom lens.

    however when i tried to change to different mode to shoot like from M(manual) or to other mode, there's a sound coming from the camera. and it takes very long for my camera to be ready to shoot. Is there something wrong with this camera? And btw the wide angle lens and zoom lens which lens is better or more expensive?

    Any advice for me as i am newbie here i really need all the help i can get thanks guys

    your bet bet is to bring your camera to the service centre or join an outing with users who are also on the same system as you and see if their camera also displays the same symptoms as yours.

    as for the value of the lens, you can check out the various price lists here on CS.

    You may wanna rephase your question again so that we know exactly what you wanna know. If you are comparing between wide angle lens and zoom lens, then I can tell you that there is no basis of comparison as they serve different purposes.

    Make sure the lens and body is properly connected, dont assume. Try unlocking and lock it back again. Check the physical condition of lens particularly the threads leading to the body. Unless otherwise, you know where to head to.

    that sounds bad, i suspect that it has something to do with the AF-S
    i suggest sending it to NSC for checking
