When is the C-770 replacement coming out?

Hello everyone

I seriously want to buy an Olympus. The C-770 fits my bill except for the lack of Image Stabilization feature. So I need to know if anyone knows anything about the C-770 replacement and do you think it will feature IS.

many thanks in advance for your help

How long is a piece of string...the answer is no one knows.

I think Olympus is happy with the design they got...they haven't made "real" improvements to the camera since the C-750. With the C-770, they got the bragging rights though of having the smallest ultra-zoom on the market.

Olympus doesn't own any IS technology, the C-2100 used Canon technology, and they lost a lot of money with that camera. Despite other manufacturers having IS, Oly doesn't see the need for it since their cameras still sell well.

Anyway, if a newer C-7xx will be announced it will be at the next PMA show which takes place in February.

Thanks, that's all I needed to know

Though I have to admit, I'm really disappointed to hear this, but this is valuable information.

I thought that they would change it because they were making a lot of money on the c-750 but still replaced it. I guess ill have to wait until February to find out, or make my choice now.

Thanks for the help, much appreciated
