I don't want to offend anyone, just showing that Olympus deserves the title for best 8MP camera of 2004.I personally think that there are many Bridge cameras of these days, that don't make images this clear. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/67c5a3e38d532764bc533b8e12fe56e151b6a44d02f268d7248f6ae5909132cc.jpg
