Default Oly c-4040 vs oly c-50

I compared a lot of digital cameras today and I saw Olivier21's question about them...
I think my question could help, too so I'd be thankful if you could answer.

Fisrt : When I compared c-4040 and c-50... why the c-4040 is more expensive than the c-50 ? After all, c-50 has one mp more !!
Im confused... what important feature that c-4040 has to be like 100 bucks more ?

second : what is the noise reduction all about ? I don't understand

thanks and excuse my newbiness

I think the 4040 is a superior piece of kit, more sophisticated, you'll have to look at the specs very closely.

The faster the lens, the more expensive the camera. An f1.8 lens on the C4040 will capture pictures in much lower light conditions, for one thing.

I have the C4040 and would not give up its optics for a c50. You will not notice the difference between a 4mp and 5mp photo. The c4040 has better optics, noise reduction, and the ability to add lens, filters, etc. C4040 much better camera.

The C720 may be one of Olympus poorer cameras. The Oly C730 is a better camera. The best of the Oly Ultra Zoom cameras is the Oly C2100. It is only 2mp but it has image stablization and the best ultra zoom camera in the consumer digicam market. There are some refubs available on Ebay and at www.refurbdepot.com

The C5050 is an excellent camera with some new features over the C4040. It has a moveable lcd panel, photo assist lamp for low light shooting, and some other nice advancements.
