Default Super Zoom P+S 35mm

I've been thinking about getting a 35mm P+S "superzoom" camera as a catch all kind of camera for use when I don't really want to carry much kit or just feel in the mood for snapping away

I see that Ffordes have a couple of Olympus AZ300 new old stock for sale at the kind of price I'm looking at paying.

Yes they seem a bit chunky, a bit clunky and not very pretty, but hey I like to be different

Anybody have one ? Used one? got any opinions ? Anybody got a better alternative ?

Ian

Nikon Lite Touch 130 or Samsung Vega 140 or 170 both can be had for under £10 on Ebay.

Looking at the photos of an Olympus AZ300 you may as well carry a Speed Graphic around........

Olympus Mju II 115 is good, and small.

I have the non zoom mju but the zoom version really isn't much if any bigger and it really is a tiny camera considering what it can do.

Hi Guys, thanks for all the replies.

Have had a very kind offer from a member, and have gone for a mju.
