Default Buy Olympus C4000, Minolta S414 (and F200 ?) or Canon A70

Hi! I've come to the conclusion that I do need a zoom,
so the Canon A300 is not interesting.

I've also come to the conclusion that Canon A70 is better
than Nikon Coolpix 3100, so that also falls short.

The remaining cameras are:
Olympus C4000 4MPix , TIFF , good flash, no sound, lots of manual settings
Minolta S414 4MPix , TIFF , 4x zoom , no noise reduction

Canon A70 3MPix , focus assist lamp, newest of the three

(Minolta F200 4MPix , this one recently got a free card from me and I really don't now if it's able to compete)

If anyone is able to compare any of them or has an opinion
please don't hesitate to write. I need input! Lots of input! :O)

Which camera gives the better result in full automatic mode (good/bad light)?

The price difference between them is not so big in my local stores,
so that's not an issue. (C4000 452EUR, S414 436EUR, A70 401EUR,
F200 468EUR (when 9.16SKR = 1EUR))

I have also read most of the recent threads that seemed
related, but felt a new thread was needed.
