Default Best Spent $600???


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


The G5 will soon be updated to the G6.
Fuji s7000 was criticized for its image quality.

I would get the Olympus c5060w, which has a superb image quality. I almost got
it but decided to get the HP 945 because it uses AA batteries and has a longer
zoon. The image quality from the 5060 or even the 5050 shows a sharper lens.
Both the 5060 and the HP 945 won DIMA 2004 awards for image quality. The 5060
is a better camera overall if you don't mind the proprietary batteries. As for
zoom, i think wide angle is better than long telephoto. The HP 945 may soon be
updated.

If your SLR is a Nikon or Canon, spend a couple hundred more and get a digital
SLR to go with the lenses you already have. The difference will be well worth
it.

I couldn't agree more. Great advice.

Do you have any proof to support this claim?

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.

....

Spend another $100-200 and consider the Canon Digital Rebel, a true SLR
digital camera, very nice. You would not regret it in my opinion. I have
the Canon 10D SLR digital, essentially the same camera but with a better
body (the camera, not me!). I think it retails for $999 but street price
should be cheaper.
