Just bought this camera. Waiting for it to arrive. Used Canon and Minolta 35mm for for 40 years. Was going to buy a Canon again when my digital compact broke. I've never owned an Olympus, but the price on QVC, $199.00 was too good to pass up. When I get it and use it for a month, I'll give another report here.

The "super macro" mode of this camera is amazing. Absolutely fantastic. You can get extreme close ups of anything. Tiny insects look huge. One of the best super macro modes I've seen.  I love it. The 24x zoom is also fantastic.
