"Even better than I expected"4.5 starson by Phil-G
Pros: Feels like a "real" camera
Cons: Viewfinder seems dim, not magnified enough
Summary: Forced to upgrade from Olympus C-720 due to a burglary (Was looking to upgrade anyway).
I added a fast 1gb memory card and a nice case and paid about $600 from Best Buy (including their add-on warranty)
This camera has all the things I consider important: A Very wide optical zoom (with image stabilization, it uses standard batteries, and it feels good in your hand (like a "real" camera). All the othere features, and there are many, are icing on the cake. I appreciate the movie mode, but, I have digital video for that.
Bottom line, this is the best quality camera anywhere near it's price.
