Default Olympus Camedia D-40 Zoom vs. Cannon Elf Powershoot s230

I am having trouble deciding between the Cannon Elf powershoot S230 or the Olympus Camedia D-40 Zoom. I really like the style and compactness of the Cannon but have read in reviews that it lacks sharpness and shoots out of focus mildly. On the other hand , I havent read any bad reviews on the Image Quality of the Olympus but it is not so pocketable due to its thickness. My major concern is the Image Quality , is the Olympus that much better? I dont plan on printing anything larger than 8x10 , so the 4 megapixil Olympia is really not necessary.I really like the ability to put a camera inconspicuously in my pocket , but i would sacrifice having a bulge in my pocket for a better Quality picture.Bottom line:Which camera produces better Image Quality ? Keep in mind that these pics are primarily going to be loaded on my computer.Great thanks to whoever replies.Ryan :roll:

The Oly optics is a mainstay for Olympus. The D40 may not fit in the pocket but it is not that heavy. Spring for the Olympus C50 and it will bit in the palm of your hand.
