Introduction

Olympus' SP series aims to push the ultrazoom category further, squeezing ever-longer zoom ratios into bodies only slightly larger than a compact system camera. The SP-810UZ is the most ambitious so far, boasting an amazing 36x lens, one of the longest we've ever seen. But we know from experience that extreme focal lengths often produce worse image quality. Strong sensor performance and expert lens calibration will be required to make this intriguing model stand out.
