Summary: I've had this camera for 3 years now and have taken it on many trips. I chose this over the Canon G6, which is also a very good camera. Both brands use the same SONY sensor but I prefer the way Oly render its images. The 27mm WA lens is also a big plus as I mainly shoot landscape.
Summary: Pros: -- Wonderful image quality, especially with RAW mode. Photoshop Camera Raw plugin 3.1 will read it (yeah!). -- Wide range of image size and compression options. -- Very good wide angle lens, great for travel, landscapes. The overall range from wide to portrait is ideal for "street" use.
Summary: Purchased this camera early this summer and, in general, found it an excellent value for the $380. 1. Good super macro capability at 1.5", although not good enough for much outdoor photography. My older Sony DSC F828 got closer.

Summary: Can anyone help? It is much cheaper for me to buy this camera from the USA instead of in the UK. Does anyone know what the pitfalls are of doing this? I am not a camera buff and would love some advice.... Thanks!
Summary: This camera was a new model just released when I purchased it. I was after the C-5060 but to was able to get the 7.1 megapixel camera with the even sharper pictures for just a couple of bucks more.

Excerpt: I have owned Olympus brand cameras before and the usually good performance made me select this 7.1 megapixel camera. I was not too impressed with its looks but what impressed me was the number of features available. Also the camera has an excellent lens and a robust metal body.
Pros: EXCELLENT PICTURE QUALITY, EASY TO USE, GREAT LENS, METAL CONSTRUCTION
