I wish you hadn't posted this, I am going to have to buy it!!!

Just bought a fuji s9600 with 10x zoom and no image stabilization, this is 18x zoom and double(!!!) image stabilization!

Any idea on pic quality, it isn't just a gimmick is it?

Can't really tell from the sample pics. The reviews seem good, although the zoom isn't amazing apparently so I probably won't buy it. Just get a zoom lens for my fuji.

Nice to see that they haven't neglected the wide end of the zoom, 28mm

I was VERY tempted by this camera - I love the idea of up to 27x optical zoom and 28mm wide-angle. I was puit off by:-
- Relatively slow speed of the camera (startup & focusing is commented on)
- It seems Olympus no longer produce the high-speed type H XD cards needed to record video.
:-(

seems a good price but the shutter lag would put me off too :)
