hi there.

I just noticed these two cameras are just a couple of bucks apart. one is 4mp and the other is 5mp. most of the features are exactly the same, except p93 is 38-114mm and s40 is 32-96mm. so what's the catch? s40 was out more recently, but I think we can assume the 5mp has proportionally better picture quality then the 4mp.

I think these manufacturers like to puzzle us... :?:

p.s.: I know they're actually 40 bucks apart, but p93 comes with rechareable batteries and a recharger, which would run at about 25 bucks. so it's actually a 15 dollar difference.

well, i definetely can't say any bad word about my P93...however, if S40 has got Carl Zeiss lens, i'd suggest to take it

heh, interesting - "Dave's Picks" list on imaging-resource lists P93 in the 5MP category, while S40 is missing in the 4MP category

so i leave this decision up to you

dave hasn't reviewed the s40 yet. I'm waiting for those to get out. if they talk about it like they do about the p93, p100 and p150, I'm definately settling for it.:G
