Most helpful reviews

John, Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Small and packaed with 2 zoom lenses giving 14 -150mm. Very good value. Easy to carry as a 'go anywhere' tool' lightweight and small for an 'undercoat' carry around. Images good. Fully automatic for that 'quick' shot if need be, full manual if not. Flash included.
Bad points:
Menu system unusual compared with 'E-system' style. Limited button control.

Gill, Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Interchangable lenses on a very small body means less bulk when carrying the complete package around.
Assignable buttons makes the somewhat complicated menu system easier to negotiate.
Bad points:
No grip on the body means it could be fiddly to hold at times.
The menu system is a little complicated for those more used to compact set ups.

Robert, Benfleet Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
A lot of features for your money. A wide range of accessories available from olympus.
Bad points:
Lack of paper manual. Manual is supplied on disc. If you are like me and prefer to practice 'out in the field' a paper manual is essential.
Lack of viewfinder with kit.
High price of olympus accessories.
Accessories available from other manufacturers limited.
The flash provided limits scope for use.

Tim, Plymouth Point & shoot

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to use, the auto settings are good and there are a good range of other settings which are very handy and easy to find quickly. More time needed to work out the finer points of flash photography.
Bad points:
None so far but the camera has not been fully put to the test yet.

Danielle, Darlington Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Nearly as good as a DSLR, smaller & good for beginners that want something better than a bridge or digital camera. Twin lense set is great value!
Bad points:
No viewfinder (one is attachable though), controls take some getting used to.
