Agreed it's all about what you want to do with it. If your simply going to be posting pics on the web, you may or may not want a high MP camera, with crops, the more MP the larger you'll be able to show the pic. One thing to keep in mind, the higher MP cameras are usually newer cameras, and while the ccd is also larger it may be of higher quality or it may not.

Bottom line..decide what you want to do with the cam, and find the largest MP tempered with the best quality and the features you desire most in a cam that fits into your budget.

Hi Kevin,

All of the photos in my gallery, except for the macros were shot with a 5 year old 1.3 Mp Olympus E100RS. Honestly - so far I'm happier with these pics than what I am now getting from my new Olympus C8080Z, an 8Mp unit. Possibly as I get more familiar with the new unit that feeling may change, but then again, with the old camera there was NO learning curve. It is truly a point and shoot. Check out the picture of the owl in my gallery. No one believes it was taken with a 1.3 Mp camera. Would I lie?
