Differences Oly SP-320

I have seen that Oly has announced the Olympus SP-320. I have the 350-model - but what is the difference beteween the SP-320 and SP-310?

Nobody is sure.

Even Jeff at DCRP admitted, as he posted the press release, he didn't know what is new. I've heard two things. One is that the 320 supports ISO 800. But nobody knows just what that means. And the 320 reputedly accepts the new faster xD cards from Olympus.

IMO releasing the 320 right after the 310 was ridiculous...

Not much difference between the 320 and the 310 with the exception that the 320 looks darker in color. The SP-350 is their top end model with an external hot shoe and 8 MP. But I'm sitting here wondering why Olympus formally stated that their focus was going to be on the DSLR market, and here they release a bunch of "cannon fodder," which just stirs the mix somemore. Why do they do that?

The upper-class "P&S" like C-7070, C-8080 were eating into the market share of their (lower-end) DSLR's. But the sh*ty digicams can go on without problems.

Cynicism requires that I think In this instance "Canon fodder" would be more appropriate ;-}
