I was also deciding between 5050 and G3. For me was important image

because bright and 5000 expensive and big).

My friends also confirmed horrible chromatic aberration in Olympus
cameras. You can check this:

Now I have G3 and I'm happy with it. My friends changed Olympus for

The link you provide shows an image of a house taken outside during
daylight hours. I looked at the EXIF data on this and see that it
was shot at f2.8. Why, o why would you take a daytime photo
outdoors of a landscape at f2.8.?? It is known that the more you
open up the aperture, the better chance there is for CA....that is
with ANY digicam, some are more sensitive to it than others. I'd
bet anything that there would not be any CA if this same shot had
been taken at f5.6 and 1/250th sec exposure.
Just like film folks......exposure is EVERYTHING!

I can’t agree more about the pic, plus the 4040 is a different camera than the 5050. I was originally looking at the G3 and as soon as I got my hands on the 5050, I was hooked. I've had Canon, Nikon and now Oly and you need to touch them and use them to help decide which way to go. I can create some horrific CA with the canon. Wish you luck with your choice.
