Default Depends on what you want to do with the camera...

Of the two, the C2100UZ is by far the more versatile camera. With it you have an excellent 2.1 megapixel imager with a 10x stabilized optical zoom to which you may add something like a B-300 1.7x and have 646mm very useable focal length.

Depending on its condition, I would think the Olympus to be a better choice - but if you need a really compact size camera with 6x zoom then the 2800 is a viable option. New ones are selling for about 100 more ($399) while new 2100's are selling for about 200 more.

Both take excellent images and have essentially the same digital resolution. The Olympus will simply get you considerably better telephoto images.

I haven't owned any other camera, but the Olympus C-2100 meets all my needs. It takes sharper and clearer pictures than the Nikon Coolpix 995 and Sony Mavica FD-73, which I use routinely at work. Close-up flash is rarely overexposed, and the autofocusing system is much more precise. Perhaps others can comment on their experience with the FinePix 2800.

If you do not take the 2100UZ hook me up with the seller. Most lickable camera I know of.
