That is not to say there is anything wrong with the Olympus, just that this is a competitive market and there are a lot of cameras of similar price and quality. If you like the Olympus, go with it; I doubt you will be disappointed. (Though regardless of your camera, I suggest you spend a lot of time with the cameras manual. Getting the best from your camera requires a thorough understanding.)Lee R

Well, I would not start out by saying your a photographer.. and then talking about a SP-800. The SP-800 is an ok point and shoot camera... but it is not on the same side of the universe as a d-slr camera.

using the Olympus SP-800 UZ
I have one and I love itl. The zoom is awesome and the ease of use is superb.
Negatives- there are no fitting for lenses so even a polarizer is impossible.
There is no manual control.
You can often gert pseudo manual control by selecting their mosdes--eg sport setting givese a fast shutter speed.
Anybody else have thoughts omn how to get pseudo manual control --eg manual focus?
