To owners of the Olympus C-8080

  1. Just ordered one of these yesterday-- looks like an outstanding camera all
    around. Just wondering about a couple of things:

    1. Have you had trouble with the included lens hood staying in place?
    Someone stated it wobbles and seemed to be ready to fall off.

    2. Any complaints about the power button being too close to the mode dial?

    These are minor issues for what you get with this 8 MP beast, I'm sure.

    Nope. Very secure on mine...

    Nope. I guess if you've got podgy fingers, though...
    I'm very, very happy with mine. Here's some pics I took with it only the
    other day...

  3. Thanks Bardo--- those were very sharp!! Unfortunate circumstances, though--
    I hope no one was hurt in that accident!

    C'mon Tuesday-- can't wait to fire up my 8080! {:)

    Hello stan and kyle,
    Accident? Did somebody fall in?

  5. I usually leaves it off, but when on, it definitely stays attached.

    You should be warned though that the front element of the lens for some
    strange reason is allowed to wobble (yes!) a little.

    As long as this wobble is around the focal center of the element, it
    really doesn't matter for focusing and sharpness, but it does feel
    strange the first time you hold the camera.

    I had to go downtown and try another (from another store/chain) before I
    would accept my dealer's assurance that it was normal.
    I _have_ hit power off instead of the release button one or two times,
    but never when turning the mode dial.
