Those are awesome pics with both cameras.

My real concern at this point, in recommending the Kodak, is the lack of responsiveness of the controls. Did you find this a problem with you 980?

Hi Gary,

I think you'll be fine with either one. The Kodak price is certainly better that you will find the SX40 at.

I used a similar camera for a couple years (Kodak Z980) and was very pleased. I used it a lot for my son's football games and the zoom worked well.

On the other side, I recently got the SX40 and think it is an awesome camera. Like I said, I don't think you can go wrong with either one.

For reference here are some examples from both cameras.
