"Bridges Prosumer and Pro Digital SLR with ease."4.5 starson by 2003borgunit
Pros: Very versatile. Excellently doubles as a point and shoot but potential found when tweaked. The articulating screen is invaluable at times. Dust elimination and Image stabilization is a must. Lenses are great and works with Olympus legacy lenses.
Cons: It may try to do too much. The cutesy art filters can be saved for the PC. Like another person said, being waterproof would be nice but I enjoy the price without it. Could stand an upgrade on its menus.
Summary: It does some things perfectly and other things leave you wondering if a little more time in the lab could have fixed them. I think that the price point this comes at, you will not find a better camera. It has pro type image quality and lens selection. Has convenience features not found on any camera and compromises the necessary with the not-so-necessary very well. Like any camera that does not cost in the thousands, compromises are made and Olympus chose how to accomplish that pretty well. I feel that if I could hack the menus and change some defaults, this could be my perfect camera. Such is life. Good job anyway Olympus.
