    Anybody own one or have had a chance to use one?

    I'm considering buying. I do like the zoom & 8meg.

    I'd like to find out how it performs.

    I have one for about a month now and love it.
    I used to think I only wanted a camera using AA batteries, but now I love
    that the battery is so simple to slip in. No more worries about which way
    the battery goes. It only fits one way. Also, Its so much easier handling
    one battery instead of 4 AAs. Also, battery is much lighter if you are
    carrying a few spares. Since you can get replacements for about $20, I'm
    over the AA preference.

    I think the price is very reasonable for all the remarkable features packed
    into this camera. You can get them now for about $550.

    SD cards have gotten so cheap, i just got a 2 gig card for $125. 1 gig
    cards are about $60.

    Noise, which is written about so much, is so slight and much lower at high
    iso than my last camera which was an Olympus C-750UZ. So, I couldn't be
    happier. Focus is very fast, manual focus is great, zoom ring is the best
    feature. So many good things.
