It would be helpful if you told us what camera you are referring to.

There doesn't seem to be any reviews as yet.

Neither does the camera offer much in the way of manual operation. If you haven't already, check the specs here, http://kmpi.konicaminolta.us/eprise/...Specifications

Check out the Pentax Optio 50 (not the older S50). The Pentax Optio 50 and the KM E500 seem to be almost identical cameras.

A friend of mine is looking for a 5 mp camera in the $200 dollar range and I saw the E500's specs....but no reviews. So far, the Olympus D-595 Zoom seems to be the best inexpensive 5 megapixel specs/review I've read in this range..but I'm curious how the Dimage E500 compares. It does have a larger display screen, 2" versus 1.8" on the Olympus.

We asked KM to send us one for review. Their response was that it would be in very limited distribution in N. America. Not sure if we will ever get one or not, sorry.

The Pentax Optio S50 got a pretty bad review for image quality from Steve's DigiCams. I'm assuming the Optio 50 fared better?
