Olympus C-4000 Zoom review

Still great after 3 years!
I purchased this camera when it first came out (nearly 3 years ago) and I have to say even based on todays cameras it gives phenominal quality shots that i'm truly happy with even today.

If someones selling this camera used for a good price dont hesitate to pick it up... just make sure you can find the now extinct smartmedia memory cards.

I'm in the market for a superzoom now(one of the things the 4000 lacks) but i will definately still be using it.

Problems:

As some people stated the worst things i've been able to pinpoint with this camera are its AF speed (it can really search sometimes in certain lights) and zoom (even though its a 3x, it maxes at 96mm, doesnt get you very far at all)
but this goes against what a great macro camera this is. honestly because of the silly menu's it was nearly a year till i found the S-macro mode, but boy once i did was i surprised.
