None, go for the Oly C730 not the 720, it has manual focus. If you don't care about big zooms (I do) I'd get the Oly C4000.

Thx for the help. The C730 is to expensive here in sweden.
I have read some reviews on the 4000Z and think it looks better and better.

I did forget to ask.

What is the major diffrent on the Olympus C-720 Ultra Zoom and Oly C4000Z ? They are about the same price in store here.
I did also read that the C4000Z is getting old and will be replaced.

I know the Olys are very good, giving great pictures. I'm also biased towards cams which use AA batteries.

At full res (3mp SHQ) I get about 70ish, in HQ 162. 2mp normal mode 257.

If I get really desparate I can go for even less resolution and get shed loads.

Default Any views on the Casio EX-z3? (or suggestions for my first)

This will be my first digital camera. Important for me is the quality of the pictures, ease of operation, and size. Please help?
