I've been using my Olympus C-5060 for a lot of macro photography, and I'm ready to move up to a higher megapixel range so I can print larger pictures of tiny things.

The two things I've found invaluable are the C-5060's excellent super macro focus (which can get 1" high objects very nicely), and the nifty pop-out, spin-around LCD viewfinder (which means I don't have to set my head on the ground, or in some narrow space just to set up the photo).

But, very few cameras have the pop-out, spin-around LCD, and I'm not finding any in the 8MP range. (The Olympus C-7070 seems like an obvious choice, but I want more megapixels... more, more, more!)

Anyone have any good recommendations?

Sony R1 has what you want and then some ... but then Iam partial toSony.

--- unless it is a dSLR, and then I marginally prefer Canon over Nikon, but they do not have the swivel LCD you want.
