Default OLY C-8080 RULES.. superior over Canon Pro1 & Minolta A2

After downloading Steves pic of the brick buliding from the OLY C-8080, the Canon Pro 1, and the Minolta A2. The Lens of the Olympus is by far superior. Just examine the ceramic rings of the power pole on the top left. Olympus is the winner followed by Canon.
The vertical bricks that go across the buiding...look below the top right window, with the Minolta A2 they become a blur right after the second window below the airconditioner unit going from right to left. Olympus again has the best detail followed by Canon.
The Nicholson strret sign magnified at 400% ...above the number 400 the letter " S " is just unreadable with the Minolta. The OLY is clearly visible.
Noticing the shadows both pics were taken around the same time.

Steve, could you post a few low-light, long-exposure shots so we can compare noise levels for the C-8080, Pro 1 and the A2?

To compare the resolution of the cameras you would have to spot focus on a certain thing in the image and compare the raw output. You never know the focus point of those shots. And you have to extract the raw and get the best possible image to compare the lenses.

Default 8080 verses 4040

is the 8080 worth the money compared to the 4040 or the 5050?

i was wondering if the flip up flash helps the red eyes like it does on the kodak flip up flash cameras

also, does it do low light as good as the 2020

Slipe ,
A point well taken for a close-up shot aperture f2.8 or the like.
Let me point out ..that I chose different parts of the image to critique.
All things trying to be equal ...auto focus etc. etc. for each camera. The shot taken at the same time of day on a wide angle, as in the " brick building pic " ....., OLYMPUS is by far the best.
