Default Oly C750 vs Oly C-4040+zoom

Hi.
I have an oly D-460Zoom
Very pleased with it, but i want a camera with more manual controls.
So... the Oly 2100UZ is not a choice anymore...
I LOVE the long zoom of the C-750... But... the F1.8 lens of the C-4040 is very useful in low-light situations... Also, the C-4040 looks like a better and robust camera than the C-750.
So the question is.
I want F1.8 and 10x zoom.
If i buy the C-4040 and an extra Zoom, will it be equivalent to the C-750UZ?
Thanks in advance!

I have the C4040 and was given the C740 for my 35th wedding anniversary. I have used a teleconverter lens on the C4040 and it made the camera very bulky. For the same reasons you mentioned is why I keep both cameras. If I could only have one of the cameras I would go with the C750 because I like the extra zoom. I can make up for low light conditions with flash or photo editing with Photo Shop.

thanks for the answer, gibson!
So.... that was the answer i wanted... currently, i can keep with pictures in low light condition with my "begginer" D-460Zoom.
So.. i will go with the C750...
Imagine a C-770 with illuminator light, and a F1.8 lens....

This weekend I'm going to a camera show, and I'm going to see Olympus and see if they have anything new in the works...you may want to wait until then before buying.

I doubt they will have a prototype new 7x0, but you never know.
