John,
2100 can still be found, some people are buying two and 3 after they find. not to hard to find. 700UZ followed then the 720UZ. But the 2100UZ is very sought after and seems to have reacched cult status. Sold my first when I got a 3040, have replaced it. 95% of shooting is with 2100UZ. Very hard not to like this camera.

Wanted to add, 3X optical zoom is fine for indoors and outside pics. But "OUTDOORS" will show the need for more zoom real fast, where it be the mountains, the coast, rivers, wildlife and much more, 10X opticel will will get you all thos specail pics. This link will take you to my picture page, camera used is identifed on each.

I got the 2100uz from pcrush.com It was about $430. They should still have more if you want some.

Matthew thanks for the reply.I probably
will buy one from pcrush.com.It seems like
a good company,according to others in the
forum. One question still remains,(if I buy
this camera today),will Olympus come out
with a new version(i.e 10x stabilized zoom) of this camera in near
future.

John,
The camera model cycle tends to be 12 months. Doing away with features as the stab lens, remot control, batteries and charger just to name a few also allowed them to do away with the $999 retail putting the 700 and 720 within reach of many more household budgets. In steves review of the 2100, I do not think he ever thought that the last statement of his conclusion would still hold true 2 years later. Guess the question is would a true upgraded 2100 be out of reach for many household budgets?
