Besides a few extra bells and whistles, the 4000 would be the better buy. I've owned a 4000 for a few months and really love the super macro. The image quality is top notch. I also researched long and hard and can say I don't regret my purchase at all. The 4040 does have sound with movie, but I rarely use the movie mode anyhow. It depends on what your using it for also. I'd say for the price, the 4000 wins hands down.

Sorry, but you're wrong about that. The C-4000 has an external flash socket on the viewfinder side...you can plug in any compatible TTL (Oly-FL-40, Promaster 5750DX, Metz) into it, or even standard flashes (with safe trigger voltage) with the right cable into it. BTW the C-4040 has the same socket.

I should add that ANY camera can use a slave or digi-slave flash, so even if you didn't have the flash socket you can still use an external flash.
