Olympus’ leading digital compact cameras are the Olympus C5060 Wide Zoom and the C8080 Wide Zoom. Beginning of 2005 the Olympus Camedia C7070 Wide Zoom joined in, and this camera may be looked upon as the successor of the Olympus C5060. The cameras have their own special style with a nice zoom range, from a true wide-angle to a reasonable telephoto. If we compare it to a 35mm camera, the Olympus C-7070 Wide Zoom has an f/2.8 - f/4.8 27-110mm lens. It might not be an ultra zoom, but it still is an attractive range. Olympus is also aiming at the professional market with the C7070 Wide Zoom. Not only the bright high quality lens and the solid build will appeal to the professional photographer, the abundance of functions will do so too.
