Summary: This Olympus camera is great. The zoom is the reason I bought this camera and it out performs my Canon SLR with a 300mm lens. The focus is very quick for a digital all-in-one and picture color is outstanding.
Summary: I bought this same model of camera about 3-4 years ago and I love it. It was my first digital SLR camera and I found it a great beginner as well as an advanced user camera. The screen got broken in an accident and I tried another model but was not happy.
Summary: This is my second Olympus camera and I am very pleased with its performance so far. I am no expert by any means and I can use this camera without any problems. The picture quality is excelent with the exception of low light pics. My last Olympus wasn't good in low light, dawn and dusk pics either.
Summary: This has more features than the Nikon L110. I had one of those first and thelense when extended locked 3 times in the first24 hrs I had it , so back it went and I ordered an Olympus. It has more features.
Summary: The Olympus SP-590UZ does exactly what I bought it for starting with the fact it has a 26 optical stabilized zoom, then it has 12MP for clear photos. Also it uses regular AA batteries so no problem running out of power. Then the price was good for the feature that makes it a good deal.
