forget about terms like "XX Zoom", they are meaningless, if you want to know what is the field of view, check out the focal lenght, it will give a better picture on "how far you can zoom".

rueyloon, it's ok for him lah, since he's looking at consumer DCs and most of them start off with about 35mm anyway....:)

Dun think 2040 or A40 will be below $500.

Maybe look at older model like coolpix 775, Canon A20 or ...

2600z has 20s without sound and web cam feature. A40 should be better if u want nite shots.

Sony has a new 2.1MP 3x optical zoom camera listed for <$500. You might want to take a look too.

There are some thread in the past week discussing this. Have a read around.

Its a tough decision. if you have the budget and don't mind the slight bulk of the C2040, you shd get it.

A40 does not have full control of F-stops. No shutter/aperture priority. It has noise reduction built-in and movie mode with audio.

and the very protable.. or more smaller size A40 is a great advantage too.
