Introduction

The Olympus SP-620UZ will replace the company's existing mid-range ultrazoom, the SP-610UZ, and offer a higher megapixel count but slightly reduced optical zoom. That's actually a good thing, because less zoom usually means better image quality.

Other than that, much of this camera will be the same as its predessor, including price: $199.99. The SP-620UZ will be available this month, in either black or chrome.
