    The Olympus E500 is a pretty decent bit of kit in standard form but you may have a problem sourcing a telephoto lens for it which you would need for wildlife photography.
    The problem is that Olympus decided to plough their own furrow so to speak when they designed the E series of cameras and went for a Four Thirds system which no other manufacturer has used before or since.
    As a result there is a lack of after market tele lenses and you would not have the choice that you would have with say Nikon or Canon.
    You would need something like a 500mm lens and that may be difficult to find.
    Have a look on ebay and see what is available there.
