Olympus did a great job of creating a camera that is a joy to use. The combination of the fast AF, well implemented touchscreen, high quality JPG processing, ability to jump between 'point and shoot' and full control, and especially the physical build quality make it a camera that is hard to put down.
not cheap, but it appears to be a good purchase11/12/2012
I got this instead of a DSLR, due to it's weight, size, and recommendations. I am still a rookie in using it, but it appears to be very good. There are less expensive units out there but not as highly rated.
Very nice camera6/28/2012
It looks great! Don't pretend that's not part of the appeal. I like for the things I use every day to be beautiful. This camera looks good when you carry it and great when you leave it out. It simply invites you to pick it up and take photos. The grip comes off; the camera can be used without it or with an optional larger grip. I love this, because I prefer to leave it off.
Size and weight are the two advantages that this camera offers over SLRs. It's got awesome auto focus and a super fast burst rate and outdoor action sports are my main subject so I need to have a camera like that.
