The kids over at Photography Blog
got their hands on that Olympus mju 9000 we've been hearing about
-- and sadly, there was nary a Swarovski
in sight. Despite that, the reviewer's enthusiasm was palpable. It's hard not to like the little guy, apparently -- it's "well made, easy to use," and "the wide-angle 10x zoom is a real attraction in such a small camera." On the downside, low-light performance is said to be "patchy," and though image quality is "pretty good," problems with noise, distortion, and color fringing were noted. The only other draw back seems to be its feature set, which is apparently lacking in comparison to other similar cameras, such as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 and Canon PowerShot SX200 IS. But don't take our word for it -- hit the read link for all the saucy, saucy details.
