    I'm thinking of getting the new Olympus Stylus 710. Really like the form factor and the features.
    I'll still have my Nikon 5700 for more manual pics.

    Would would you guys buy if shoping for a new slim P&S?

    Thanks!

    What's nice about the Nikon?

    My friends have used Olympus and I've seen them turn out really nice pics.

    I got my girlfriend a fuji F460 (i think).

    It was really slim, about 5 mpix, doesnt have manual settings :greddy:, but at least it takes pictures nice and fast when you press the button & pretty reasonable quality, huge screen.

    She loves it

    I don't need manual settings for this cam.

    The Nikon doesn't look that thin.

    And is Olympus really that bad compared to Nikon?

    Just re-read your top post, realised you said -best-.

    It definately isnt the best, but its great if your on a budget.

    I've heard good reports about the Canon iZoom camera as well.

    IIRC the Olympus take some fucked up expensive memory card ... Might not be the one you are looking at.

    The S3 and S6 Nikon are really nice ... they do not have a lens poping out of the body so you can fit it in your pocket with having to worry about it turning on and fucking up the lens

    I would give an other vote for the Nikon

    I think most/all of the Olympus cameras use xD discs which are flimsy and overpriced.

    Why hasn't anyone said anything about the Canon SD series? I've had my SD300 for over a year and have shot 6,000+ pictures through it without a single problem :dunno:
