Default Canon A-40 - Best $300 Digicam???

Am considering the Canon A-40 as my 1st digicam purchase. Is it about the best in the $300 price range?? Has Canon fixed the problems with focus while using telephoto and the low-light autofocus problem? Are there others I should consider? Thanx - Dave

Dave,
If your screen name meens you are really into the"Outdoors" might really think zoom. 3X optical is fine for indoors and outside. But for the great outdoors 6X optical min even better 10X Optical. Wildlife, fisherman in another boat making great catch, wild life on shore. and do not forget the beauties sun bathing on the beach. Optical zoom for the great outdoors.

Gary - see you have the 700UZ, my sister also has it. What about it as a 1st timers choice? They appear to still be available.

Dave,
Nice cam, about $340. You can get the 2100UZ for $100 more but it comes with batteries and charger, makes it only about $75 more. givs alot more features. just depends on your budbet. My weapon of choice is the 2100UZ 95% of time.

Well - Bought a brand new C-700 from Cameta Camera on E-Bay auctions. Paid $400 + shipping. Will probably be more than enough camera for me for a long time.
