As it turns out, one of the electronics chains here (Future Shop) had the
Olympus C8080 on sale starting today. It was cheaper here than any of
the Canadian online camera shops. So I bought it :)

I was going going to get the Olympus C5050 if the Fuji truly didn't have
decent image quality. I really wanted the Olympus C8080 but it was 500
flimsy Canadian dollars more than the 5 MGP cameras. But since its on
sale, I was saving money - not really spending more :)

My wife was impatient and wanted me to get a camera and told me to get the
8080 :) I have to pay with these feable malnourished Canadian dollars, so
it cost me more that what Jack quoted.

Now all I have to do is master color gum :) I now need to buy a new
