Well maybe my search is over, 28-504 mm, anti shake and Live View. Just have to wait till March to see how the Noise Levels look. :D

It sure does look like a very interesting camera, although I'm very curious to see how effective the CCD shift anti-shake will be at those long focal lengths - remember the sensor can only be shifted so far.

Long focal lengths is an area where optical, lens-based stabilisation seems to be more effective, but we'll just have to wait and see!

We will of course be reviewing it as soon as Olympus has samples ready...

Anyone else excited about the SP550?


PS - remember PMA is coming up in March, so expect a glut of new cameras!

Well it looks OK to me, but no wireless remote and the image quality is not quite there. I would have liked to have seen more on the Bright Capture and the Pre-Capture to see if they are useful or just gimmicks.
It is starting to look like the Sony H9 for me.
