    Hi

    I do scuba-diving and I want to buy one digital camera.



    One friend has one Olympus C-5050 Zoom and he takes very nice photos.



    When I was prepared to buy the C-5050, the C-5060 Wide Zoom arrived to the
    market.



    The C-5060 is a C-5050 upgrade. For this, the C-5060 is the natural choice,
    but, my friend tells me is better to buy the C-5050, essentially for the
    lens. He tells me the C-5060 needs more light because this camera has a
    F1.8-F8 lens and the C-5050 has a F.28-F8.0 lens.



    I'm a newbie in this area. For this, what camera I must buy to do
    scuba-diving?:

    And your friend didn't lie. However for underwater work the 5060 may be
    better due to its having a wider angle lens. Since difraction reduces the
    angle of view of the lens.
    Do no know if there is a housing for the 5060 as yet. Myself I use the
    C-5050 with great results.
