[Read our full Olympus SP-565 UZ Review
At first glance, the only difference between the SP-565 UZ
and its illustrious predecessor, the SP-570 UZ, is the price. Looking closer, there are a few noticeable downgrades: no RAW file format, smaller ISO range, and lower frame rate. More importantly, though, the SP-565 UZ matches the phenomenal 20x optical zoom of the SP-570 UZ. And if you're in the market for an ultra-zoom camera, you'll want the most powerful zoom in your price range. For those who can sacrifice some extra features for a substantial reduction in price, the Olympus SP-565 UZ is an affordable—and capable—alternative to the SP-570 UZ.
