olympus 740-750 help - Photography

Is the lens on the 740 the same as the one on the 750? Also, is the 4.0 meg that much better then the 3.2 to justify the price difference if the other features on the camera don't matter, thanks in advance,...

    The two cameras do use the exact same lens, so there should be no
    difference there.

    In my opinion, 3.2 MP and 4.0 MP images don't tend to look hugely
    different on monitors, though the extra resolution can be handy if
    you're printing large - but between these two MP ratings it isn't a big
    difference. Having said that, it's the 4MP 750 that I've got my eye on,
    even though its other extra features aren't *that* immediately important
    to me (for the record, they are: a dedicated hot shoe, slightly more
    metal on the exterior [the back's metal for example], microphone and
    speaker for movies and audio clips, included IR remote control [740 is
    not compatible with it], included NiMH rechargeables and overnight charger).

    So really, I'd say it's the sum of all the differences, plus the
    resolution difference, that justify the higher price.

    It es me off that Olympus keeps making their 700 series in the ugly
    silver bodies. The black 5050 looks so much nicer.

    But to those of us who do sports-type photography in the hot sun, black
    does not make sense, since it absords energy (heat).
