Olympus SP-550 UZ review

Bought this sometime last year. Compared to other super zoom that I have used, the Olympus is light, very well constructed and versatile.

Pros: long 18x zoom, smooth zoom action, fully featured, light and easy to carry around, low light performance is acceptable, 28mm wide angle is useful, good LCD screen.

Areas that could be better: start-up time is a little slow, had difficultly in focusing in low light at long end of the zoom, manual focusing not easy, no filter thread.

Problems:

None.
