Bought this camera because of previous good experience with Olympus cameras. The telephoto lens (26-520mm) brings subjects up close and the macro lens allows you to shoot within an inch of subject. I especially like that it uses 4 AA batteries. The down side is that it uses higher priced xD-Picture Cards which are required for panorama shots. It also uses microSD cards which I have not used yet. Like many digital cameras today it has too many features to begin to describe. The price was excellent compared to Canon and a Panasonic that I was also reviewing for purchase.
