Default Olympus c4000z or c4040z?

ok.... I am pretty much decided on the oly c4000z but was wondering if the c4040z might be better for me (if I can find it). I would need the camera for a variety of pictures, some web work, action, still, indoor, outdoor.. most of my son for scrapbooking. I am thinking the difference between the c4000 and the 4040 is the lens (f1.8 in the 4040) so maybe it would be better for action and indoor photos. Also, what are your views on refurbished cameras... I have seen 4040 refurbished cameras at discounted prices but wondered as to the chances I would be taking on one.

Thanks for any input...

Carla

Both of these cameras are good cams. I have the 4040 and really prefer the F1.8 lens.

heh.. well, now i'm thinking that I might just go with the 5050 since it's so hard to find the 4040 and some prices at some yahoo shopping sites are pretty good on the 5050:

are these yahoo shopping businesses ok?

thanks, ]

that price looks a little too good, you may want to check out ressellerratings or other such ratings for that site to make sure it isn't one big scam.

thank you, even though there are many really low prices on yahoo shopping, I think I will go with a place I know other people have gone through and know is reputable... even if I have to pay a little more...
