And now with the stylus 1 being a super zoom with a constant 2

Summary: I received my bundle just the other day and was impressed with what the kit consisted of. I knew that the price of the camera alone was around $650, so when I saw the bundle, it was a no brainer. The extra items alone would have cost me another 70+. Now I have been a fan of the olympus mirrorless cameras since they released the EPL-1. The size, weight, and variability of these interchangeable lens cameras blew me away. I still use my EPL-1 to this day.
Excerpt: It is a small compact camera that does so many things. The ART APPS are fantastic and the pictures are clear with gorgeous color….the charger is a bit big for such a small camera with a 6 foot cord? what were they thinking?
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
Summary: Great camera! I use this when I don't want to shoot with my DSLRs. It feels sturdy and there is no shutter lag, though writing to the card still takes time, even with a fast card. The high speed shooting mode helps. It shoots raw, which I love and the viewfinder is excellent. I much prefer using that to using the LCD, especially in the sun. The only obnoxious thing is the charger. I'm used to one piece chargers with a built in plug.
Excerpt: I just got this camera yesterday and so far it looks like a winner. I ordered a Canon G16 at the same time, since I have been a Canon user for a long time. My G15 got an interior crack in the LED and the screen became useless after 4 months. Canon wanted to charge me half the price of the camera for labor and charge me tax on shipping it back to me. I called them and said "Thanks, but no thanks," then I ordered the Olympus Stylus 1 to replace the G-15.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Multiple Zooming Capable, Small / Compact, Touch Screen
Excerpt: We have no desire to go back into the past where we lugged heavy camera gear around. So far the Stylus 1 has been very easy to work with and we took off and started using it immediately. We haven't use the telephoto lens and coupler kit yet but did mount it and took a few distance shots and were satisfied. Anxious to see how it works in cold temps which is always a challenge with digital.
Excerpt: I did a lot of research before deciding to purchase the Olympus Stylus 1. I am very pleased that the camera actually does the things I wanted it to do for me and does them very well. I appreciate the range of options from iAuto to fully manual. This helps me get the photos I need immediately while also allowing me to explore the seemingly endless combination of options when I have more time to experiment. The image quality is excellent and performance time is fast.
Nice EVF. The only annoyance is a bit complicated ...

Summary: works as expected. Pictures are a bit soft compared to my prime canon lens, on full format digital SLR. Nice EVF. The only annoyance is a bit complicated manual focus in full manual mode. Excelent travel camera.
