Default C2100 UZ Where?

OK Guys (Gals) I am new to this forum and new to taking fine photos also. So I need a new camrea. I have read the reviews and have decided I would like to have an olympus C-2100 UZ.
Question ? Can this camrea still be bought new? I can't find one on the internet. Did find some used. (don't want used) Is there a better camrea or newer model, That has taken the C2100 place?
Any thoughts? Or sources? I want to take pictures of wildflowers and wildlife. Thanks Bill

If you want it for the image stabilization and the zoom, but you can live without manual controls you can get the Panasonic DMC-FZ1 which is a 12xIS Leica lens camera (but again very few manual controls).

There's also the Canon Pro90IS, but that's about the same age as the Oly C-2100 and again difficult to find new (actually they both use Canon's IS lens technology).

PM or email lg for info about getting one of these cameras. He recently gave me a lead on one for a decent price.

Best regards

John

TexasBill, you are right-- it's getting harder and harder to find a new one out there! Most of the new ones are going on eBay for about twice what you can buy a refurbished one for. A class "A" refurbished camera comes with the same items that came in the original retail box, has a 90-day Olympus warranty, and is a good deal in my opinion. If there's a problem with it, you can always get it fixed under warranty. I have purchased two refurbished units, and am very pleased with both of them.

Plus if you're in the US or Canada, on top of that 90 day refurb warranty you can buy a 2 YEAR extended warranty from Olympus which includes a cleaning and a checkup for $84US. It's definately worth it for the C-2100UZ:

Note that you have to buy the extended warranty before the original warranty expires!

Default Haven't got one yet

Still haven't found the C-2100 but have been looking . I did bid on one but did not win the bid. I think I will try again. I also want to thank you guys for the help. ebay has some more listed. I missed the last one at $550.00.
How about the E-100RS is it as hard to find? I haven't found one of those either. Thanks Bill
