We compared all the other digital cameras that support an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory to this camera and we think the DMC-G80[pl_3838432_price], and the DMC-G80[pl_3838432_price] both from Panasonic which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If the memory card type of this Olympus digital camera is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the Sony Alpha A6300[plb_3305928_price] (MS PRO Duo|MS Pro-HG Duo HX|SD|SDHC|SDXC and cheaper).
