My back up camera Olympus C-2100 had a shutter freeze in the closed position. I contacted Olympus and have to return it for repair.
During the conversation the tech confirmed what I suspected..My Olympus C-750 NEW MODEL DOES NOT HAVE IMAGE STABILIZATION as my C-2100 has. ( have been tossing about 25% of my zoom action or in lottsa cases still zoom shots on the C-750.
Canon and Nikon do have on selected models with zoom.
Bottom line--If you want a camera with a long (8-10 optical) ZOOM do not purchase an OLYMPUS.
