My old dad has asked me to try and find out from the people on the Olympus forum the merits of purchasing an Olympus C 7000 / C70 in the uk here , he has seen some refurbished C 700 cameras selling direct from the good old USA at lower prices "just " than the Canon 610/620 he has nearly bought ,but not yet ,This to replace ahis old Sony 75,Any reccomendations on the C 700 from users or users of the Canons would be most helpfull , Likes of the Olympus are metal body higher res lcdsmaller then the canons A 610 / 620 nicer buid he thinks and 5 x zoom. Advantages of the Canons possibly faster ,flip screen, sd cards cheaper and new not refubished , I think the Olympus is nicer but you users know better than us , One thin he has looked at the latest Cameras that Olympus have out and thinks they are like the canons too plastic, ie 320 i thin he said ,got his mind set on the C 7000 just needs reasurance , thank you any one who may have some answers on this choice of camera,

Hi rodo: The C-7000 has gotten many positive comments from it's owners. I think it would be a good choice if the price is right. FYI here are some reviews:
