This thing is simple to use it has an outstanding zoom and impeccable picture quality. You are able to go from still distance photos to HD move mode with only one button. I love it! It’s light not bulky and so much like having a SLR it’s scary! It is truly a highbred one lens does it all.

Have to say that I find this a lovely camera to work with.
I had wanted a “bridge” type and had looked at a lot of units before I made a purchase.
Still getting to grips with it and find that there is enough automatic control to ensure that my pictures turn out well and enough manual functions to let me feel in control.
Picture quality is excellent for most of the subjects that I want to work with. Ideal for garden photography and I have managed some very nice lunar shots too.
I would have liked the camera to have been capable of time-lapse continues delay shooting and for the format to be selectable between JPEG and RAW. But I had to make that trade off to get the other features that I wanted … If Olympus ever do a firmware upgrade, they may take that into account.
All in all .. a super camera and well worth the money

Without the telephoto lens on the camera (or without the use of binocculars) I would not have been visually able to identify the birds in the attached photos.

I am just getting the hang of my camera but it is much easier to use than I thought it would be. Great camera!

My wife bought this camers for my birthday and she couldn't have bought a better gift. The pictures are beautiful and the ease of use is great. She and I are both Skywarn Weather Spotters and occasionaly we need to e-mail weather related pictures to the National Weather Service and the quality of these pictures is fantastic. Thanks for making such a great product.

I received the camera a couple of days ago.I charged the battery and the next day I tried out some features.
The quick response upon firing it up made a good impression with me.
First:I maxxed-out the zoom and was amazed at how clear and crisp the very far-away objects looked.
I played with the magic art filters and they are way cool.
Second:I took a couple of macro shots,indoors with and w/o flash.Again,the crisp and clean pics knocked me out. I have not tried many of the features because it rained all day and night.
Tomorrow I will try the 3D,Pet/face detection,and panorama.I am positive they will be amazing!
I can't rate all of the features until I can test them out.
