looks like it has to sacrifice the zoom for more pixels...hard to fit a large focal length range into a 3MP.

the focal length now is 40-320mm, compared to 35-380mm for c700uz. I guess the "effective" focal length range when we compare the pixels will be about the same.

If this cam has a good noise reduction bundled, and has less noise and CA in the pics, that'll be really good.

The features described seem to be exactly the same as C700 except for the zoom and MP. Even the design is identical.

Just visited the Olympus official website, there are some "downgrades" in this camera:

1) F2.8/3.4 to F7.1, compared to F2.8/3.5 - F8.0
2) shutter speed 1/1000s to 8s, compared to 1/1000s to 16s.
3) ISO100 to 400, compared to ISO100-800

There is no noise reduction, but there is auto-pixelmapping. I guess the reduction in shutter speed and ISO is to minimise the very notorious noise problem, but it is no value-added, it just takes away additional features.

So, any takers? :D
