Olympus' 8-megapixel ultrazoom generally improves over the SP-550UZ, but suffers from many of the same problems.
Olympus SP-500 UZ
Aside from a debatably useful 26x zoom lens, there's little that's notable about the Olympus SP-590 UZ.
Poor performance diminishes the Olympus SP-570 UZ's potential as an otherwise solid megazoom.
If you care more about having a long lens at a low price than photo quality or manual controls, the Olympus SP-800UZ is an option.
