Olympus C-8080 Wide Zoom review

I've used my 8080 since they first appeared and I still like it. Great lens. Some reviewers complain about slow write times in Raw - 13 seconds is an eternity. Just for fun I used a 2Gb H xD card. Write times came down to 10 seconds. Not much improvement but every little helps. Camera has the 78 firmware.
The camera is inclined to miss-focus in low light and sometimes I find using spot focus helps. Now that I'm aware of the focus problem I just check more carefully.


Occasional miss-focus in low light.
