I have been looking at getting a Nikon Coolpix 4300 for a while now. I took a look at Olympus's cameras the other day and was quite impressed with the prices of the c-series. Doesn anyone have an olympus camera? If so tell me what you think. Thanks

I have the Olympus C-4000 and I couldn't be happier with it. Pictures are incredibly sharp, great colors, options for full manual control. I honestly don't think I could have found a better camera for anywhere near the price I paid for this one.

I use the Olympus C-730.
The 10 x optical is great. Even though it's a 3.2 megapixel, i have still printed up to A3 size with good results.
Only downside is when shooting in macro the built in flash is hopeless as you get a shadow cast on your picture due to the flash bouncing off of the lens tube (extends out a fair way from the body).
Apart from that i have found it a great camera and even though i want a DSLR, the lens prices are the killer, this camera (and the C-750 new model) have a 380mm lens built in!
