Default C-730 ?? (3MP, 10x zoom)

<A HREF ="http://www.ukdigital.co.uk/spec%20sheets/olympus_c730uz_digital_camera_spec.htm">Have a Look at This!</a>
I've done some searching, but this is the only page I can find - no mention on Olympus' site.
Looks interesting - anyone have any more info?
Supposedly arriving in Australia in 4 weeks or so.

if you check output you will notice "PAL", not a USA market item.

Default I'd like more info on how to get one.

3mp with 10x. The best of both worlds. I'm torn by the 10x 700 and 8x 720. I zoom extensively. I have yet to purchase either the 700 or 720. 730 would remove all decision factors. Can anyone provide cost and ability to purchase in UK and mail to US?

Default Whoa! Olympus C-730?

What is this about? There is an Olympus C-730 available in the UK? Or Austrailia? This is the first I've heard of it. Hmmmm.... that would be a nice camera... 10x with 3 mp...

No! No! No! I cannot buy ONE MORE CAMERA!! Well, maybe...

Willa,
Has only PAL video out. If you shoot a clip of Golden Gate Bridge and play it back on NTSC tv it will look like the London bridge. For a larger camera bag you may consider Harley saddle bags attached to a Harley.

I just bought the 700 just over a week ago due to some of the features that were missing on the 720...the 730 has some of them back again.

Still wish it was more like an SLR, like having some body on the left side of the lens (it's difficult for us lefties to hold the camera properly, especially since my right hand had an injury that limits its use). You ever try to hold your left hand the EXACT way it's described in the manual...you have to be a contortionist!

Also wish that it had proper SLR strap mounting points...when I wear the dinky one that came with the camera around my neck it tends to choke me (it comes too close together at the front).

And also wished it had the proper eyepiece so I can attach a rubber cup.

Very nice Alex!!

This is where I was waiting for!
I also saw your post at dpreview, but it seems that nobody discovers your great news!!

I'm sure I'll wait till Christmas before buying a camera!
