SOURCE: Auto Focus Problem
There are numerous reason why this camera could be haveing lazy focusing. The C-7xx series do not have focus assistance, the focus by contrast. So if there item you are focusing does not have alot of contrast to it, the camera will search for a while to find something. In darker areas such as indoors, low light, or low contrasty areas your Olympus will also take longer to focus due to the contrast issue. Many cameras in this price range has similar issues. For fast moveing subjects you may try using the wide angle settings on the zoom, use manual focus, or study up on Hyperfocal distance an use this method.

Does the shutter button feel like it's contacting twice as you press it in? if not, the spring disk in the switch is split; It has happened to me on other cameras on several occasions. Solution is to replace the switch.
If it works otherwise I would suspect the ribbon cable. They can get loose, or the contacts can get oxidized. I don't know specifically about the c-8080, on some cameras the contacts are tinned, which can oxidize. In that case it's a matter of gently rubbing the contact strip with a paper eraser until the contacts become shiny. Of course, that means disassembling the camera ;)
You've probably retired this camera or don't have it anymore but in case you still have it, I hope this helps a bit.
