so my pentax optio s4i got stolen and im looking to rebuy a camera similar to it. how is the s5i in comparison? it seems the prices are the same...

dangit, i have to rebuy a 256mb sd also

i bought the s4i because it was VERY COMPACT and had GOOD QUALITY. so thats what im looking for. I dont want anything under 4 MP cuz i like large pictures, but i want something SMALL and COMPACT. Thanks guys, cuz right now all i have in mind is the S5i

The S5i is exactly the same as the S4i but w/ a 5mp CCD sensor. If you want to save some money (atlease enough for a 512mb card) then go w/ the S50. It's marginaly larger (less than 1/4" in each direction) and is available for around $215 online. The S50 (and S40) use the same optics as the S50 and S5i but in a ever so slightly larger body (but still EXTREMELY compact). I've compared the S50 and S5i in person and the size difference is very minimal and definitely not worth the price difference unless you need the camera to fit into an altoid box.
