I had the Olympus C5050, and I cracked the LCD & got a splash of soda on the zoom button, and Olympus won't fix it (not even for $280). Honestly, some tech is just too fucking lazy - cause they've fixed the sticky zoom button problem once before. What I'd like, in order of priorities: 1. >5 MP 2. $280 - $350 3. SD Card Compatability 4. Possibility of AA Batteries, or relatively cheap batteries. 5. Professional "SLR" look . Not looking for it to fit in my pocket. I'm considering: 1. Olympus' SP-500, although it only takes xD cards [Amazon Link] 2. Panasonic's Lumix DMC-FC20K, but it's only 5 MP [Amazon Link] I have absolutely no problem going with a slightly older camera if it's packed with cool features (and it's still available new somewhere online). Any and all input is greatly appreciated. Is Panasonic any good?
