3040 Issues I just got a 3040 and had a question about a couple of things I noticed (I've never owned an Olympus digital camera). When the camera is powered up, the noise from the lens coming out sounds awful (like a grinding noise). Is this normal? It zooms in/out without any problems but it just sounds odd. It just doesn't sound smooth... Is a stuck pixel on the LCD enough of a reason to return it for a new one? The pictures do not show the stuck pixel but I am concerned that a new and e

My old camera was an Olympus Camedia c-765 digital. My new one is an Olypmus SP-800UZ 14 megapixel. The more I use the SP-8OOuz the more disappointed with the pictures I take. None of them seem sharply in focus like they were with the Camedia camera. Am I doing something wrong or is it a failing in the camera? I have tried most of the multiple settings but I am just not satisified. I thought with having more megapixels I would get a better picture. Am I wrong? Thank you

With new high energy digital batteries we get approxiamtely 40 - 45 pictures, with 4 differnt manufactures rechargable batteries, we get 12 - 15 pictures, before the batteries require replacement. The camera was retruned to Best Buys where we purchased it aong with an extended warranty. They keep the camera for 10 days, retruned it saying nothing was wrong. Any suggestions?
