  • Compact, Easy

    I've loved Olympus Cameras since 1975. I purchased an E 620 a few years ago and it is too complicated and too heavy for me. This is wonderful. Great photos, adjustable as I need it and compact. Only thing I don't like is the lens cover doesn't stay on. Pops off with just barely touching it.
