Yes, the Olumpus Stylus Epic, or mju-II as we call it in Europe, *is* a nice 
camera, with a good lens, even for B&W. The only difficulty I have with this 
one, is activating the spot meter. The two rubber buttons on the back are so 
small. It is really a "Ultra compact 35mm camera" worth the investment. A 
nice holiday and family snap camera.
