We have had this digital camera for several years and it has been perfect for our family. It has been dropped a few times, banged up a few times, rained on here and there and it is still taking pictures beautifully. We got a great deal on ebay for the camera and some accessories to go with it (including additional memory). I would recommend this brand of digital camera! The display is smaller than some of the newer models on the market but not tiny. The one thing I did notice is using the display feature when taking pictures does use up more of the battery. But I would also imagine that more recent models have addressed this. We have gotten great picture quality from this, I would love more zoom features and less of a delay when taking action shots, but again this is something I am sure more recent models have taken into account. When purchasing my next digital camera, I will stick with the olympus line.
