"How do they compare?"

I have to admit I did not shop around at all.  The camera was for my 7 and 9 year old daughters.  They love the not-waterproof TX-66 so I was getting them one more similar so they did not have to share on vacation this year.

This is a link to and old round up comparison (2011).  None of the cameras are current obviously, but I think (for no good reason actually) that the updated versions do not stray too far from the older models.  Although from reading the Olympus forums I think maybe the image quality of their newer offerings might have improved more than the other models.
