Well composed very beautiful landscape photo with impressive cloud formations. You have nicely captured the subtle tonalities of clouds. Only thing I am not very convinced about is the light brown colour that you have chose for frame... but that does not make the photo worse.
As you have mentioned in one of your earlier posts, C-8080 is a fine camera. It was best camera ever made in its classa and the whole series starting from C-5050 till C-7070WZ and C-8080 are great tools. I was ready to buy the next 8090 or 9090 or whatever the successor of 8080 might have been if Olympus would have made it but it never came. Instead of that they started that ultrazoom race.

Fully agree...

.. with Pekka comment.
Really outstanding clouds!.

I also keep my C5050z, the best camera I ahave ever had...

Kind regards.

Thanks to Pekka and Jes...

Yes, I love my 8080 and like Pekka, was looking forward to a 9090 and hoped for a manual zoom and logical manual focus.

I too, kept my 5050 but the EVF in the 8080 won me over and I seldom use the 5050 these days, but do agree it was also a great camera.

Will I break down and buy an E3?

I am holding off to see if the Olympus EP-2, will have a high rez EVF in a small camera in the form of the E-330 (EVF in the upper left corner).

Cheers to all..!!
