Another very nice portraiture, Judy. I am thoroughly impressed with the lens on the C-4040. You certainly do wonderful things with it! #18627

A great portrait. Perfect depth of field you've managed to achieve, from his hand to the back of his head cloth. A very interesting and kind looking man. #41415

If you were to replace the C-4040, what would be at the top of your wish list Judy? I have compared so many and about the only affordable alternative I can find is the E-10. Maybe the C-5050 as the price begins to drop. I know you may be thinking digital SLR, but the cost and the fact that any digicam with interchangable lenses requires constant CCD cleaning doesn't make them a viable option for me. #41566

Judy Miss Ben Joud May 26, 2019

i dont know the c-5050,but a NIKON i've seen-dont remember the model ,also a Sony -again dont know the model,but if I had the money I bet icould find something I like.Unfortunatly that's not going to happen any foreseeable time #41589

The Olympus C-5050 is the latest in the line of compact zooms from that company. It offers the same superior f/1.8 lens that your 4040 boasts. But it accepts Compactflash I&II, X-Picture or Smartmedia flash memory, has a 5MP CCD, and retains the great features Olympus has developed as this line of digicams has evolved. Street price, about $700 right now.

Nikons CP5700 is nice, but it is still about $1000. Of course the Sony F707/717 get rave reviews, but the huge size and the more limited apeture lens don't make them my first choice. With the C-4040 going for less than $400 if you shop, I really don't see a platform that offers as much for anywhere near the price. #41623
