Super zoom at a super price
on 6 December 2011
I have owned this for two weeks now and I have put it through it's paces,I have been a photographer for over 30 years now and still enjoy the hobby, I own several compact cameras and a couple of Nikon digital cameras the thing that I always crave for is more reach to get this reach with SLR cameras you have got too pay big bucks for big lenses I suffer from chronic back pain and it has left me disabled there is nothing like getting on my motability scooter with camera(s) to hand ,the Olympus is quite outstanding you can take a photograph of the moon and you can see the craters on the moon!
There are features on it that I have not seen on other cameras is the mirror effect it's so funny , I don't use my SLR cameras any more as they are heavy and cumbersome , the Olympus is so small and light and the price is very reasonable compared to Panasonic and Fuji.To sum up I would say this is a fabulous camera.
