Default S5R or Optio 555? Thanks!

A quick question.

I have used and tried 2 cameras in the last 30 days and I would like to purchase one of them, but would like to hear comments/experiences.

[1] Kyocera S5R
[2] Pentax Optio 555

Has anyone used either camera? If so, what are your experiences? Do you recommend one over the other?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts, comments, and help!

The Kyocera is slightly more compact and seems to have a better buffer for rapid shots. Other than that I like the Pentax a lot better. I think the 5X zoom is more versatile and I prefer having a full manual mode. My current pocket camera has only a 3X optical zoom and there are many times I wish I had more. And the Pentax has a lot more flash range.

I think your personal experience with the two cameras should tell you what you like though.
