I have owned the 4040Z for about three months now and have taken about 1000 images on it. I'm reasonably happy with the image quality. I have made full use of the many differet features of the camera. Problems: The lens suffers from marked barrel distortion at the wide angle settings and there is also chromatic aberration evident too at the border between high and low contrast, giving yellow and blue lines in these places of the image. The OM System lenses of thirty years ago didn't suffer ...

I have had camera since Apr 13 after owning a 2100z for a yr, I picked the 4040 so I could use my existing memory and it sounded like a good camera. My 2100 just stopped working, unreliable, 2x in for repair. For this new camera I bought an extended warranty as well. pics are mostly good but how do you turn the flash OFF? Problems: don't know how to turn flash off sometimes inaccurate light metering on auto setting stupid lens cap need lens extender to put filter on, the thing gets in the way ...

My first digital camera, I've had it for 1 month now. Bought it on the web in Germany, prices at the moment are down to 733 €. My main reason for choosing an Olympus C-series camera is that they are the closest in design and operation to a regular SLR camera. Plus that they are very well built and have excellent image quality (although some newer digicams are somewhat better in the digital image processing department). Likes/dislikes: + fantastic lens + excellent image quality + impressive ...

I have had the C-4040 since 28 February. I liked the handling. I found some of shots at SHQ slightly soft in focus, under perfectlightig conditions. Problems: Now Olympus has had my camera longer than I have. I found hot and dead pixels on the CCD and sent the camera in for repair on 28 March. Repair lost my warranty docs...then found them, but not before trying to bill me for repairs out of warranty. After three calls to them, and a letter from Oly I find that they are waiting on a part ...

Got this camera for just under 1000 euros and I think its abit high priced but dont forget its a 4mp camera. After searching days and nights mainly on this sight I decided on the c4040 and g2 after holding the 4040 it just felt right, after 3 months I have this to say. I really dont regret getting the 4040 over the g2 much lighter, faster lens etc etc... Love the point and shoot (p) program. Love the Apature program (a) program Good colors. Good macro mode. Love the flash. Taken over 1000 ...

The menu of the camera is really easy to use, and AE is really fast, Lens is also excellent. Nice camera if for new photographer. Problems: I wonder when I got the camera that already with some dead pixels. I confused that many users have already complained about that, but the quality still not good? Olympus!!....please do a better job....

Beware of this camera. I purchased one brand new a month and a half ago & it's an absolute piece of junk. Nine days after I purchased it, the pixels on the LCD started dying. It also had problems reading the smart media card. You would have to insert it nine or ten times before it would see it. It also has the worst color balance of any camera I've ever used, especially in low light situations (and I've owned 7 digital cameras so far). I sent the camera in to be repaired, 10 days after ...

I've taken more than 500 pictures with this camera and most of the them turned out excellent. The low-light / indoor / night scene shooting is exceptional. I also like the way Olympus maintains the Camedia design throughout its history beginning with the C2000Z. Some quarters commented that the design is outdated but IMHO, if the design has been appealing and popular, why fix it (the analogy is not unlike the popular Porsche 911). The use of ordinary AA batteries is also a plus point. Problems: ...
