I was looking at the Olympus Stylus 500, the new 5mp digital camera. From the outside, it looks great, with a nice large 2.5 in screen. It has 23 pre-set picture modes.

Does anyone have any experience with the camera? How is the general picture quality? Battery life? Is the lens glass?

I'm basically trying to buy something compact, also considering the Canon SD300. Mostly concerned about picture detail, color and quality. Do occasional 8x10 pictures, but mostly store them for viewing on my computer (large/high quality images).

Thank you!!

The camera is too new to have reviews out it seems. Steve has the Stylus 410 listed in his Best Cameras and it has the same optics.

My guess is that the lens has some plastic elements as none of the pre-press lists an all-glass lens. But the 410 took very good pictures with the same optics.

The SD300 is more compact and takes better movies if that is of interest to you. It is also on Steve's best camera list.

I doubt you could go wrong with either one, but I would wait for a good review of the Stylus.

not too positive but i should always wait for at least one more review as even reviewers have personal tastes
