Summary: Received the camera well within the requested time period. It was as advertised, small but not too small. I just finished using it for the first time during a trip to Europe it was easy and fun to use with good results. I still have a lot to learn about the camera so that I can take even better pictures. I would recommend this camera to my friends.
Summary: I brought this on vacation before I read up on how to use it, but was able to easily take some beautiful pictures. What I really like so far is the grip. It's so comfortable to hold, you can do it with one hand. Also, the screen is so much larger than my other camera's screen - a big feature for me and something I looked for specifically. The camera is still small enough to make it convenient to use and non-cumbersome.
Summary: I am overall very happy with my purchase. My strongest buying point was the smart panorama and the zoom. My only disappointment is there isn't an actual (paper) manual to help navigate all the different settings for the camera.
Summary: lets be honest here: i love this camera.i really do. it's compact, fully state of the art, and feature laden. full HD video. and it addresses my major complaints from a previous olympus point&shoot, that being the delay between shutter button pressing & the actual picture being taken (a full second was too long), and the time it took to "store" the picture on the memory card and be ready for another picture.
Excerpt: The best all round camera available. My 6th Olympus and the best to date. The image quality is very good. Having a 24X zoom lens gives lots of flexibility. From wide angle to telephoto. The image stabiliser works well. Noise is well controlled. Flash is fairly powerful. It may have a tiny sensor but the amount of detail recorded is considerable. If the sensor was larger the lens would be bigger and the whole camera would no longer fit in a pocket.
