I need to know if Olympus C-55 Zoom has Manual Focus or not?

I mean, just like the C-70 has the function of focusing the lens on an object manually, does the C-55 do the same?

I don't want a camera which only has AUTO Focus. I don't need 7.1 megapixels, all I need is 5.0 megapixels so C-5500/C-55 is a great camera for me.

The only thing holding me back is the confusionif Manual Focus is available on the C-55 or not. I do not mean Manual shutter control, I mean the manual focus controlof the lens.


Someone please help!

I always like to read all of the reviews, and try the camera out in a local store before purchasing. Here are all of the professional reviews that are available on the web AFAICS:

Thank you so much for providing the links. They helped a lot! :-)8)

I guess C-5500/C-55 doesn't have Manual Focus afterall.

A quick check @ dpreview.com shows that it HAS manual focus.
As for me this camera seems pretty good. You should read owners opinions of course.
