The C-3040Z is Olympus's update for last years C-3030Z, fitted out with a new "fast" F1.8 - F2.6 lens (answering the criticism that last years lens was based on that found on the C-2020Z). The C-3040Z also features several internal processing and software changes. Available at around $800 (and in some places as low as $750) the C-3040Z seems to offer a lot of bang for your buck, but how does it really measure up? UPDATE: Imaging-Resource also publish theirs.
