Olympus D-40 Zoom (C-40 Zoom) review

I've had the D40 for almost a year now...

1. Size is great...nice and compact.
2. Pictures are awesome! Very sharp, crisp and clear with amazing detail.
3. Basically easy to use.


1..Flash recovery time is poor...sometimes almost 10 seconds between shots...and delay from when you press shutter button to when picture is taken is a little long...this can get real annoying especially when I'm trying to take multiple pictures of my fast moving 2 year old daughter
2..Low light pics are a little grainy
3..Start up is a little slow and if you don't slide the lens cover all the way over, lens doesn't activate
