It is easy to like the FE-320 for its stylish looks and feature-rich specifications. But what we like to applaud Olympus for is in making things work.

I had a good 2 years out of my camera until I dropped it while drunk in town one night late last year, as with the above reviews the lens got stuck. Haha definitely my fault unfortunately. Shame though, it was a good camera.

Looks good, good images

Possibly weak lens

Within 30 days, the lens would not retract or would just get stuck and the camera would just turn off. Returned for warranty repair, but the repair has been denied. Olympus says the lens may have impacted something. I advised that this is possible...
