PC World post Nikon Coolpix 950 and Olympus C2000Z short article

PC World have posted a short article on the pros and cons of the two top condenders, to quote: "Although some of the latest digital cameras are small enough to fit in your shirt pocket, their prices may bore a hole through it. Svelte new models from Nikon and Olympus deliver beautiful, ultrahigh-resolution images, but each of them carries a hefty $999 price tag. "
Like most computer magazine reviews I'd take it all with a pinch of salt as there were a few questionables:
"The Nikon's 8MB CompactFlash card holds 8 uncompressed photos captured at 1600 by 1200 resolution" (at 5MB a piece, really?)
"Overall, for the best-looking, most vibrant pictures and easy-to-use controls, the Coolpix 950 is your best bet. But if you want a camera that works with a floppy disk adapter and comes with extras such as rechargeable batteries, consider the C-2000 Zoom. " (Hmmmm.... )
