Review Excerpt

  • Really solid body littered with external controls feels like a camera should; Very bright zoom lens; Clever EXR modes; Raw support.

  • White orb problem; EV dial difficult to turn; Below average battery life; Shallow buffers; Occasional demosaicing errors.

  • Good image quality for its class; Fast, bright f/1.8-2.5 i.ZUIKO 4x zoom lens; Dual-purpose front Control Ring lets you select aperture or focus manually; three-inch articulating LCD touch-screen monitor.

  • Pricier than many enthusiast compacts; Image detail starts dropping off at ISO 800 and noise becomes problematic at ISO 3200; Lens cover pops off as zoom lens extends, when you turn the camera on.
