now that 5060 is out ... any idea what will be the advantages of choosing 5060 over 5050? what's the price diff between them?

personally i like 5050 using the AA battery, but of course would like to hear more about other important aspects before i make a decision.

You gain a longer zoom (4x vs 3x), gaining on the wide angle side (27mm), faster bootup and response, a LCD that can be flip back and reverse, and a build in filter thread. (C5050 requires the use of a lens adaptor to use filter)

You loss the use of AA battery and the maximum aperture is now f/2.8 (vs f/1.8 of the C5050), and the camera is taller.

Price difference is only about $100, assuming you are refering to new ones.

Erm...you mean Oly E1....I would consider the DSLR as there's an option of lenses you can use...been using my 5050 for abt 6mths now...veerry satisfied with the quality...but at times fustrated due to lack of "pulling" power...although the 5060 have a 4x zoom...still might not be sufficient...since gonna invest you money...why not pop in a few more hundred and get the option to use a range of lenses?? :dunno:

Just my 2 cents worth...

It is the same reason why A1 is selling cheaper than 7hi. The older model have been sold at the higher price to the retailers, if they lower the price there will be a lot of complain from the retailers I think.

Any comments on the shutter lag between the 5050 and the 5060?
Shutter lag of the C5060 is said to be much better than the C5050, but that is what I heard. If you are think of buying it you should try it out yourself.

I don't think 5060 has a built in filter thread, it still need a optional adaptor.
The 5060 do have a build in filter thread. However it still uses a new lens adaptor for Wide angle and Tele lens.
