Olympus c- 8080 zoom
I have noticed that most of the new 8 megapixel camera reviews( like the new Sony,Nikon and Canon) make mention of considerable noise at higher ISO's. I see no mention of this problem with regard to the Olympus 8080. Is this not a problem? And, if not ,is it not worth mention?

All digicams gets noisier as the ISO goes up. Look at the sample pics on my C-8080 review and you'll see what they look like at every possible ISO speed.

I don't feel that I am qualified to to make a judgement on the sample photo's noise level. Could you (Steve or other qualified person) give me your opinion on the C-8080 vs. other 8 m. cameras in this catagory? If I am reading the review correctly this camera is a bit of a standout. I have been waiting for these reviews to come out for some time and am anxious to buy my camera. I feel like this catagory is appropriate for my needs as I would like to enlarge and hang my photos.
