Question, I just purchased the e500 and want to be impressed by it but I am finding myself to be very disappointed. So far the vividness of my old C740 is by far better. In order to even get the pics to be close to the c740 I have to turn up the saturation +2 and contrast +2, and over expose the pic +1 to get it light enough, however the picture is still very flat in color by comparison.

Secondly the red eye reduction flash seems to be totally worthless, taking the same pic with or without it makes absolutely no difference, fortunately the red-eye fix in the camera does a pretty good job.

Any input?

I can post pics later, at work right now, don't have them with me if that would help.
