You know, I have traditionally steered clear of Olympus's point-and-shoots even as I have embraced their micro four-thirds cameras. But the SH-50 iHS seems to be a decent piece - especially for $299.

Also, I recently picked up a TG-820 waterproof/tough camera on closeout for $169. No, it's not a TG-2, but it's quite solid and the price was so low that I won't be upset if the waterproofing ever fails.

The only thing I could ask for with either camera is a slightly faster lens. But I have better cameras and lenses if I need them.

Not the best lens performance.... typically the main struggle for a high zoom compact...

Just received my SH-50. Didn't play with it yet but the current price is $269 everywhere.
So far it feel solid in my hands, and the setting menu is much less cumbersome than the Sony HX30V I have.
