    OOOhhh! Aaahhhh! I just went from a Oly C-2020 to a C-8080. Should be at least 4 times better eh??

    Actually, a friend wants to sell the 8080 and I am messing about with it for a while to see if I want it. Sure is BIG compared to the 2020. It has A LOT more features, buttons, dials and gizmo's on it too.

    I will post some comparison pics when I get a chance.

    Gee, I have a C-5000, kinda only about 2/3 as good as the 8080 I'd guess... from your way of calculating that is...:D:D:D
    What's the specs on the 8080?
