Summary: My daughter is involved in a photography class and needed a digital camera for her class. After researching cameras and taking into account what she needed for her class and the outstanding reputation of Olympus, as we own 3, this fit the bill.
Summary: Love the small size although it may be a little difficult for my mom to use - she is 82. Easy to take pictures and really like the large screen. Thanks for an easy purchase and quick receipt of item.
Summary: I was amazed at the pictures I took. While the screen looked dark, I checked the picture and it was awesome. Nothing like I saw in the screen. The camera is thin and fits anywhere with out taking too much space. I love it.
Summary: I Loved the size,ease of operation, picture quality and price of the Olympus FE-5020 I purchased. I would recommend this camera to anyone looking for a quality camera without the high price tag.
For $117 you can't beat it: Just remember theres a lag!

Summary: For $117 this is a best buy! The five time optical zoom is a minimum must, while the picture quality rivals any of the other sub-compacts. Most of the time, the picture quality is in stunning high definition, while I have had a couple blurry shots (a lot to do with how it is set up). For the most part, the auto flash, focus, stability, etc. will leave you with some outstanding pictures (close to our SLR).
Summary: I bought this camera to replace my FE-340 which suddenly stopped working when the lens would no longer retract. That camera got a lot of use and it was cheaper to just buy a newer model than to pay [...] minimum repair charge. This newer model has more bells and whistles and makes it so easy to take good pictures. Olympus offers some of the best zooms for those candid shots or ones where you can't get close.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact
