awesome camera for the price

Bought in a double zoom kit with 14-42 f3.5-5.6 and 40-150 f 4.0-5.6 nearly two years ago. I've been shooting almost everything, and I have to say, that it takes very good pictures. I love the colours, especially when set to vivid. It creates a strong color effect and I use that option mainly for macro and portrait. Shooting sports is pretty easy with the 40-150 but only at daylight. Lots of people complain about the 3 focus points. I have to tell you, thatit isn't a disaster. For example, I never felt that i have only 3.
Overally it is a good camera to use, if you're an amateur, but when upgrading to higher level lenses, it can become a real pro.

Problems:

There are a few things, which i have to mention. It would be nice to see a built in LED for focusing and a flash, which pops-up higher. Also, I found the viewfinder a little bit small, but it isn't that big problem. Anyway, the worst is, that Olympus didn't continue this line of cameras, because they vould produce a lot of nice and great cameras to their highgrade lenses.
