M thinking about getting a digicam, and I've definitely got one eye set on the Canon G2. But the bulkiness of it and its relative short lens (4X optical and 11X digital) is the downside (although optional zoom lens is avail). On the other hand, the Olympus D40 is small enuff for me to throw into my pouch while I lug the SLR around for the zoom shots. Dunno what the accessories are. Anyone have any suggestions to help my decision between the two, or even suggestions for other cams?
Another question is, what is the diff between optical and digi zoom? And how do you convert it in terms of mm as on a 35mm lens?
