Default Canon G3 vs. Canon S50 vs. Pentax 555

Hi to everyone,

I am a beginner in digital photography and I hardly could decide myself wich camera is best fited for me. As you would expect I won'tt need to many manual features at hte begining. But I would enjoy to have the best Quality/ Price ratio.
Suposing the following prices:
Canon G3 $489
Canon S50 $ 373
Pentax Optio 555 $ 389 (after mail in rebate)

Which one do you consider to have the Best Quality/Price Ratio?

Thank you

Default Take the s50

G3 has the same ccd as S45, and right, it has more functions but S50 has the ccd that G5 uses. S series is fantastic to use. I am a S30 user and still using it, compare to sony etc..canon is the best.

The S50 is amazing, as is the G3, can't say anything about the Pentax as I've never seen one. I own both the S50 and the G3, and they are each good for different things, with considerable overlap. The G3 is more versatile and the S50 more compact, but the G3 is by no means large and the S50 has full creative controls (just no flash shoe or fast lens).

Its all about balance.

So please let me know your opinion. Which one do you consider to have the best Quality/Price ratio (for standard package) between G3, S50 and A80.

Thank you a lot

I like the G3 best precisely because you are not limited to the "standard package", but if size is important, get teh S50.
