Olympus V104160BU000 Final Thoughts

"All in one package."

It is easy to use and takes clear pictures. 5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. This is the perfect compromise camera for me. However, while it was still working, it took great pictures and was very easy to use. Love that a strap, case and lens cover came with it, among other things.
