I am looking for a new camera, and my major needs are a decent optical zoom (6x+) and something lightweight so I can carry it about in a messenger bag without feeling really weighed down.
If you have bought/been given a camera recently, I would appreciate your personal experience. All the googling in the world hasn't made me any more decided about what to buy. I like the Olympus, but I've heard the picture quality is a bit iffy.
Thanks for your help!
