!!First Post!!
Been a long time reader which I finally decided to join the forums. YAY!!

To make a long store short; i was debating on getting a DSLR but i was affraid that i would become too bored of it seeing that im really finicky with carrying extra baggage. So after reading around i stumbled across the 570 where i decided to go ahead and test this baby out. Ive had it for a few days which i havent really tested it yet, but here are few quick snaps that i was able to take.

Here's an example of its 20x zoom.






Some SM shots!!






and for those who wonder what the cam looks like when extended...







So far for the little time that ive spent with this, im really happy with it. Ive always been a PS type of guy, so seeing all of these features and goodies is a tad over whelming at first... but seeing that everything flows nicely i can see myself getting addicted to this. Any thoughts or suggestions on what's needed would be greatly appreciated!

Lsstly, nice to meet y'all fine folks!


**EDIT**
Sorry for the large photos, i'll scale them smaller next time, im just used to other forums having a auto resizer.

tOmy,
You should join the olympus talk forum and see what the 570 has been doing lately. There are some pretty impressive shots there and a lot of advise on how to get the most out of your camera. There are quite a few 570 users there.
