  • Excerpt: Bigger everything Olympus’s jump in zoom range gives you the bonus of a whopping 180mm telephoto as well as the moderate wide angle of 36mm. The big telephoto sucks in subjects from further away and makes shooting sport or taking candid shots of the kids much easier.
  • Pros: Big 2.7-inch LCD screen
