Summary: Camera is very easy to use. Compact and light to carry. Pictures seem blurry on auto mode. Manual and program modes are slightly better but still appear blurry. Sent camera for service due to blurry pictures, Olympus states camera is fine they cannot find problems with it. Pictures are still blurry. Overall ok but would spend more money next time for another brand.
UPDATE: No Polaroid filter options, must refocus often by pressing "shoot" button, needs lots of light, low depth of field

Summary: If you shoot indoors this camera needs lots of light. Pictures come out dark in indoor environments and with comparatively short focal depths no matter what light conditions you are in. The quasi "back light" mode really doesn't work very well and the lack of a Polaroid filter option means you get lots of glare. The lack of a mountable lens cover means you have to be extra careful to protect your lens at all times.
Summary: FOCUS LAGS: For the price it was a cool gadget! But, but.. Problems focusing with zoom - even when not at full 40x, it already looses the object (i love planespotting, so imagine my frustration when you see a nice white plane with trail in blue skies, but this camera chokes on it and can't focus). Same happens with clouds, hard to focus when zooming, so it's not the problem of camera stearing at on coloured field and not finding where to focus.
