Default Best Spent $600???

In article , Tom C.

I'm finally jumping into the digital camera world after having a great slr
system for some years. Would like a 5mp or better mid-level camera to start
with and was considering the Canon G5, until I read about the slow autofocus
that some reviewers have mentioned online. Trying to keep my budget to
$600, but can probably go up to $700 if it's worth it.

Any others that I should consider?
How about the Olympus C5060w? Fuji Finepix S7000?

since you have an existing slr system, you might want to save up a
little more and get a digital slr. the nikon d70 and canon digital
rebel are about $900. pentax will have one in that range soon, and
minolta will have their first slr but it isn't expected to be that
cheap. there will be a world of difference between these and the
cameras you listed, and you already have lenses.
