Summary: This camera turned out to be a little complex for us. We should have gone for a simple "point and shoot." This is a point and shoot plus, plus, plus. We did order a written manual and even that confused us!
Summary: I think I will love the camera because of it's ease of use. Being that I am 79 years old, I needed something that is easy for me to use. I have only had the camera a couple of days. The battery is the problem, it does not hold a charge, it should according the the reviews I read about it.
Summary: i've been using large sensor cameras for many months, so my perception of picture quality is a little skewed by that. This camera is small, convenient and flexible.

Summary: Having previously owned and really liked the excellent but slightly impractical XZ-1 (in stylish white), I jumped at the chance to get my hands on this one. I had traded my XZ-1 for a Sony HX10v purely for its usability and better zoom but missed the Olympus for its better lens and picture quality...
