If I hadn't gotten the Optio s5z, I was considering the Nikon Coolpix 5900, which usually sells for a bit more but steves-digicams.com says it outperforms the s5z.
Keep your eyes open and let me know if you see a similar camera for sale for around 50 to 70 bucks. I've been looking on ebay and ksl but no luck yet.
