The best all round camera available.  My 6th Olympus and the best to date.

The image quality is very good.

Having a 24X zoom lens gives lots of flexibility.  From wide angle to telephoto.

The image stabiliser works well.  Noise is well controlled. Flash  is fairly powerful.

It may have a tiny sensor but the amount of detail recorded is considerable.  If the sensor was larger the lens would be bigger and the whole camera would no longer fit in a pocket.

It handles well and has a good battery life.

Re: review

I can only use my eyes to judge the look of a photo, and my eyes had a most pleasant surprise when I first saw the results this little gem gets. The price surely must warrant a second look from those seeking a travelcam.

I'm thinking it may be joining the trend to a weaker AA filter, if so a good move according to my eyes.
