The Olympus C8080 King of the new eight megapixel digicam dominion
Pros: VERY fast, excellent 5X wide angle zoom, broad ISO range, dual memory media slots

A monster gadget at an affordable price
Pros: Long lasting battery life and crisp pictures with the wide zoom lens.

Lives up to the term 'prosumer'.
Pros: Results, size, feel, ease of use.
Cons: Fiddly conversion lenses. Time taken to write tiff and raw files to card.
I would recommend this to anyone who is a keen amateur and does not require the versatility that interchangeable lenses will give. Read More at Epinions.com

If you are ready for a "prosumer" camera - this is it!
Pros: FAST startup, very little shutterlag in comparison, nice EVF, WIDE ANGLE, configurable, solid feel.
Cons: NOT a beginners camera! Buy a cheaper model if you only want family snapshots.
I love this camera! After WEEKS of reviewing it's rivals, I agree with the PROFESSIONAL reviewers that this is the camera by which all other prosumer cameras are measured! Read More at Epinions.com
