Default Portable digital cam?


I'm looking for a digital camera and some of the wants are listed below :

1. portable (small enough to carry around)
2. good for indoor and zoom photography, ie 28mm-115mm (in 35mm equiq) would be nice
3. 3mp or above
4. reasonable battery life
5. preferably supports CF2
6. manual modes etc..

The nikon 5700 seems to fit the bill except I think it's a little too big and the zoom lets doesnt do wide enough angle.

Any suggestions for a smaller sized camera that can do 28-115mm ?

The 5700 is a pricey camera so your budget is high enough for the following:

I think you'll struggle to get 28mm, most only go down to 38mm. The 3020 used to go down to 32mm.

These are more compact.

Oly C5050

I worried about wide angle but most of the time I find stitching works well enough.
