I have the same question, concerning both of these cameras.. one for the zoom and fps and other for the larger sensor... I have to choose one of them by next wek... and I do not know what to do...

right now in america, these 2 cameras are in the same price range "380.00" i dont know which one to get. i just heard that the SX40 does have a lens error problems.
