Default 4040 or 5050

I love the 5050, but its a little pricey for me. I'm wondering if the 4040 is a better deal, or if the new features on the 5050 are worth the extra money?? Can anyone give me any advice on this?

Also, it seems that there are hundreds or 'refurbished' 4040s on the market. Are they really refurbished, or are they just required to be sold as such?

What I like about the 5050 is the fact that it takes CF, SM and XD. Very versitile. Of course there is the extra resolution of the 5050. The two are very similar but the 5050 is loaded with more goodies. Maybe it's just me but everytime I comprimise on something like that I always feel cheated. I almost bought the 4040 last year until I found out it only took smartmedia. I'm glad I waited. Look at both and go with your gut feeling.

I recommend the C4040 as a great camera. The C5050 would be a very easy upgrade for except I am not willing to pay the price. However, I already own the C4040. The extra MP is not one of the points that would influence my buy. The swivel lcd panel, the assist lamp and other features would cause me to upgrade. At www.dealtime.com the difference in price appears to be $125. I would purchase the C5050 for that price difference. I have purchased from www.buydig.com and was satisfied with the results.
