Olympus C-4040 Zoom review
Oct 26, 2007

This was the first digital camera I ever bought, and I still use it a lot. The reason: the lens! You just can't get an f/1.8 lens on a digital camera. This more than makes up for the lower 4 megapixel sensor. The color, image contrast, and subtlety are vastly better than most other cameras. Expensive at the time, it shows that "early adopters" of new technology sometimes get items with features and build quality never to be found later on. I have an extension tube and a polarizing filter--highly recommended.

Problems:

Slow start-up time by today's standards. Shutter lag also. Takes smart media cards--now very expensive.
