We own an Olympus Stylus 1010 . It has 7x Optical Zoom. We like the camera a lot, but it is getting beat up. Also, the reset time (time until you can snap another picture) is longer than we would like. So I am looking to replace it. I looked at 2 cameras friends had, a Samsung WB35F and a Sony DSC WX220. Both have higher Optical Zoom, 12x and 10x, good MegaPixels, 16.2 and 18.2, and good reset times, but apparently these models are no longer made and I cannot find a good, follow-on model for either. Also, I would like to know if there is a better one to suit our needs. It is so confusing with so many brands and models and discontinued models, etc., as well as the fact MANY compact digital camera have very low Optical Zoom, 4x, 5x, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
