If any of you had or have one of these can you tell me the pro and unpro of the models?

Thank you very much!

Whatever brand you buy you cant go wrong.

If you ask my choice:

1. Nikon, 2. Olympus, 3. Canon

Just my idea.....

Olympus 8080 is winner.

I had 8080 - only problem is slow RAW operations .

I have the Sony 828, and one of the main reasons I chose it over the other two you mentioned were the wide angle and mechanical zoom.

The Nikon's lens starts at 35mm equivalant, so it is missing the 28mm wide angle of the Sony and Canon. Granted, it goes to 280 which is farther, but wide angle was more important to me than telephoto.

The Canon is nice, but once I compared the electronic zoom on the Canon with the real mechanical zoom on the Sony, it was no contest. The Canon's electronic zoom is awful.

Just my opinion. Your milage may vary.
