I can do videos, sound, close-ups to 8" optical/digital zoom equiv to 7X auto/manual settings, and it does not eat batteries like they're free (I average 120-140 pictures with flash and LCD going, on 4 rechargeable NiMH) . A lot of cameras can get closer, and have higher zoom, but how often do you think you'd need more? I'd rather put the cost for higher zoom and macro into something I woud use more often. If you go to my Webshots album, you can see some closeups I've done of insects in the " Bugs, slugs, critters & creepies in my garden " album. Unless you really want to get into the nitty-gritty details, this camera zooms close enough. The features on the newer models are close to the same, a few differences, but the quality is undeniably Olympus

(Um, I can't take all the credit for the pictures - seems this camera takes the pictures I want to get, regardless of how much I flub the settings )
