    I can get the olympus for 350 or the 4300 for about 320. Any reason the Olympus would be worth the extra money? (minus the the obvious 5mp v 4mp)
    Or is the 4300 better, even though is is lower mp? All the reviews I've read say there both good cameras, just looking for someone who has some hands on experience.

    Olympus cameras (in general) tend to produce a warmer, richer colour than most. A tendancy that I really liked on my C-3020z.

    This Olympus has more barel distortion at wide angle, and more pincushioning at full telephoto than the Nikon does.

    The Nikon has a 5 point autofocus, which is always nice (reason I got my sd100 rather than any other compacy digital was for it's 9 AF areas).

    I love olympus, but between these two, I'd get the nikon. However, the are both fugly, so I'd probably buy neither.

    Have you held both of them in your hands? Which feels more comfortable to you?
