    Thnaks.. I know they always refer fast len as one with large apexture like F1.8 or F2.0...

    So that what it means.

    Larger aperture mean the shutter open up with bigger hole to enable more light to enter at the same time. I afraid this is the best explanation I can do with my limited knowledge.

    If you need more detail/technical explanation, THE GURUS PLS HELP! I am a newbie you see.

    Not entrirely correct! 7 upon 10...

    It's that the smaller the F-stop number, the bigger the aperture will be, thus letting more light in.

    Shutter is not equal to aperture.

    Let's picture this....the aperture is equivalent to the pupil of a human eye which enlarge or reduce in size depending on the lighting conditions....in low light the pupil will have to open till its widest to let in more light, the reverse if light is strong.

    Except that the eyelid is always shut and open only for brief moments to let light in.

    Great, I just finished writing the most concise guide to photography ever with that explanation.

    Hmm this has whetted my appetite for the olympus range of cameras. For the olympus 2000 series which should I aim for? The oly 2000, 2020 or the 2040? Or the Oly 3020?

    Remember I'm looking for a value deal so right now I'm thinking 2020.

    For the C-3020z (or C-3100z in some mkt) should be no problem finding it at all.

    As for the C-3040z and C-2040z, these can still be found in the mkt with a bit of effort...the rest are already discontinued long long ago.

    Also please take note that you can only get C2040 at $750 from John3:16 with free gift somemore. Doubt if you can get this price elsewhere. They are either no stock or around $1000.
