It's a little off topic but since you seen to be a fan of Olympus cameras I was wondering if you have used a 590UZ and tested it at it's full zoom length,...

No, I have not tested the SP-590UZ. It came out only one year after I bought the SP-570UZ.

The improvements are the 26x zoom, and that it can take 8GB SDHC memory cards via its MASD-1 adaptor. RAW has been dropped.

The SP-570UZ has the least noise of any digital camera I have ever owned, which is a dis-incentive to replacing it. CA on the SP-570 is also remarkably absent, particularly at the far end, but it is an unknown with the SP-590. We have seen too few examples here, and those were all from first-time-buyers.

Sorry to sound negative. But since the SP-590UZ has been available for almost a year, I would now wait for the CES announcements.
