Default best camera with decent zoom for under $550?

I not a photographer, and I don't know too much about digital cameras, so I hoping for some good advice.

The camera will be mostly used when travelling, and I will mostly be used to point and shoot -- no fussing wih settings.

Aside from that I know I want a good bit of zoom. Current film camera has 2x optical zoom and the wife and I both think that has not been nearly enough in the past.

So, I've been looking at the Olympus C-730. Quick price check shows I can get it for about $440, which seems really good, but is there something better for my needs?

thanks for the help!

In a word NO.

Penny for penny the 730 takes some beating.

Fuji also do the 3800 with x6 zoom. Both cams will P+S with little or no hassle.
