Why It's CoolFive-by-sevens printed up at near-35mm-film quality, which is a real testament not just to electronics but to the quality of the f/2.8 lens. The bonus here is a 27mm-equivalent wide-angle, which is great for shooting landscapes, and a 110mm-equivalent 4x optical zoom. » The videocam-style swiveling LCD preview screen "knows" its orientation—the Olympus flops the image when you tilt the screen. » The 5060 fires off three frames a second. » Dual memory-card slots mean you can add more capacity cheaply, and shoot longer before uploading.

Hmmm . . .There's no display in the viewfinder for adjusting settings. You have to pull the camera from your face and use the LCD.

*Expect to pay less than MSRP at your local shop.
