In the end the Oly SZ-31 pipped it simply because it showed more promise in shooting and innovation.

So, with that in mind I have been patiently waiting for the release of said camera.

Note, Olympus has said that they are going to be cutting back on the point & shoot cameras (narrow down the portfolio). It is unclear when such cuts would be made, and whether it would affect cameras that were already announced but not shipped yet, or just future announcements.

Definitely not on this model.... I don't think I have ever been excited waiting for a camera. That changed when I read the full spec and what for a small 'super-zoom' this camera should achieve.

Those Dual Engine TruePic V image processors are going to open up a lot of creative juices.
