I checked a popular Olympus forum and there is no talk of the C-8080 being discontinued.
Checking the on-line stores....most have the C-8080 in stock.
Perhaps the Olympus distributor in Utah needs to get busy.
I have received e-mail from CompUSA indicating that the C-8080 has been discontinued. I have been unable to find a brick&mortar store that has it in stock (within 60 miles of Salt Lake City, Utah). What's going on?? Availability of all Olympus digitals in this area seems to very spotty.
