X10 viewed with C-8080 perspective

Anyone remember the Olympus C-8080? Probably the zenith of "prosumer" cameras before the arrival of consumer DSLRs temporarily crunched that category (now happily revived).

I'm getting my wife the Fuji X10 for mother's day. She happily shoots with the C-8080 -- though it's biggest failing by today's standards is focus hunting and inside/low-light performance. But outdoors in good light, still quite a masterpiece. And a lens that's still talked about with reverence. Surprised to look back to find it was a very respectable 5X 2.4-3.5. And, surprisingly, a 2/3" inch sensor, like the X10.

Just a pang of fond nostalgia.
