Excerpt: Bought this for my wife who decided she wants to take pictures rather than waiting for me to take pictures! Size and weight near OMD models, well built, nice feature set, IQ very good, good zoom range, I personally like the Oly jpegs and there is raw for those who want to tinker.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD

Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Summary: For 10 years I shot thousands of photos with my trusty Canon Powershot G3. I was always surprised at how sharp and clean the photos were. But I got to a point where I needed a real viewfinder, a bigger LCD, and better video capability.
