Well after lots of research and reading reviews, I have narrowed down my choice of digicams to the following:

Minolta A200
Minolta 2500D external flash
Minolta ACT-100 telephoto conversion lens
Sandisk 1GB Ultra-II CF

Olympus C-8080WZ
Olympus FL-36 external flash
CLA-8 / TCON-14D telephoto conversion lens
Sandisk 1GB Ultra-II CF

Nikon CP8800
Nikon SB-600 external flash
Nikon WM-E80 wide-angle conversion lens
Sandisk 1GB Ultra-II CF

I will be leaving on vacation on Monday and want to take along my new digicam. Most of my pics will be of indoor group people pics (wide-angle) but don't want to limit myself at the telephoto end, which will come in handy when my daughter does her confirmation this summer and at my church, the photographers can only take pictures from the balcony which is at the end of the church. If it were you, which combination would you choose?

All three are good cameras. You need to decide for yourself what's important to you...

Image stabilization...A200 or CP8800

Best wideangle w/o converter... A200

Longest telephoto w/o converter... CP8800

I assume you've been reading the threads aboutimage quality, so I won't comment on that.

The most useful zoom range...in my OPINION... is the 28 - 200 on the A200

I'd be careful taking a new camera on vacation... it's not the time to be learning how to use your camera....do you have enough time to become familiar with it before you go? Take along the manuals...
