Sony S40 - Olympus D595

I have been unable to find any reviews or sample photos for either camera.

Here is a look at the specifications:

Unless you are wanting to print large photos, 1 megapixel will not be noticable.

Brands are about equal.

One Note: If you select the Sony S40 and you want to use the 640x480 video mode, you will need to buy a memory stick PRO. A regular memory stick is too slow for 640x480 movies.
