I have an SP500-UZ and like it. I liked Olympus cameras up to that model. Unfortunately, what I see in the new models coming out dissapoint me. I shoot in RAW and none of the new Olymuus models support that. The shutter speed could be higher. Does no lens mount mean I can't mount my filters in front of the lens? No manual focus is hard to take and the fact that it doesn't have an eye level viewfinder turn me away. I have bought mt last Olympus Ultra zoom camera.
