Default Which would you choose, and why?

Olympus C-4000 Zoom
Olympus C-5050 (assuming I can get the extra cash!)
Canon PowerShot S45
Canon PowerShot G3 (assuming I can get the extra cash!)

What do the expert here recommend:
1) the best value for the money? Why?
2) the best overall? Why?

Please...I could REALLY use some help here!

I never had a Cannon but have tried them.Everyone has their favorites.Most people seem to stay with what they start out with because they are use to how they work,or are similar.I started out with an Olympus D490Z and was very happy with the photos it took,(and still using on occasion)and wanted somthing with a lot of controls.I then choose the C-5050 because I had a good experience with my first Olympus.Also the features and forward and backward compatibility with media amongst other things.I am very happy with my choice and very impressed with this camera.Of course the final test is picture quality,and it has that.
Good luck on your choice.Its for you to decide not for me.
Those are all good choices.I don't think you will go wrong with any of them.Whats in your wallet?

For value, I'd pick the Olympus C-4000. But, if I had the money to either choose between the Canon G3 or the Olympus C5050, I'd choose the Nikon CoolPix 5000 Seriously though, I like what the CP 5000 offers in terms of manual features. However, I think there is a website somewhere that compared the CP 5000 versus the G3, and the G3 seems to outperform the CP 5000 in image quality....could be wrong though.
