SX40 users - help with superzoom advice for a friend

I'm a 1D4 and Sony A77 shooter with no point of reference to offer advice for a friend (retired guy whose not a photographer) whose old Kodak superzoom was recently stolen from his home. But he wants my advice.

I bought a Kodak z990 for a good price ($160) on Ebay to see what it can do. I'll sell it to him for what I paid or keep it as a Kodak keepsake.

I took a couple of pictures in my yard and went on a walk this morning with the z990. What I need to know is how these compare to what you would expect in a similar situation with the SX40.

Thanks in advance for your help.
