Perhaps that was a bad choice of words describing the Olympus LCD screen. The Nikon screen is exceptionally clear, but as I said I'm more concerned with the image than the LCD. I haven't been a big fan of the Nikon line of point-n-shoot cameras and of the reviews I read that mentioned the image quality of the P310, well, it wasn't all praise. I'd hold out for the LX5 if I knew for certain something was in the works for a updated model, not that this means the newer one is positively even better. Olympus makes fine cameras and the XZ1 is one I was checking out.
