Based on the camera specifications it looks like a perfect camera for a beginner as a simple point and shoot camera which provides great results with iAuto mode. However, it doesn't meet the expectations at all. The image quality is very poor especially outdoors, focusing or measurement don't work properly in many situations and the colors are inaccurate. The long zoom works well but it doesn't help if the images produced are useless. I've contacted the European support of Olympus and sent them sample photos but they are declining the problems and recommend to use the "P" mode. Why the hell would someone use regularly preset programs with a camera which is designed as point and shoot? I don't recommend this camera to anyone and this is the first and last Olympus camera I will ever buy.
