Default Fuji S5000 vs. Oly C-740

I have narrowed it down to these two cameras, the Oly C-740 and the Fuji finepix S5000. My needs are outdoor photograpghy as well as familyshots at gatheings, purely amatuer. I hike and rock climb, and especially like shooting my friends and children. Any input is greatly appreciated. I am limited to Best buy for the purchase as I am getting gift certificates for the holidays from everyone. Thanks to all.

I have owned the C740 camera and it is a very good camera. My son owns the S5000 and it also is a very good camera. I like the S5000 better than the C740. He also bought his at Best Buy. They gave him a $100 instant discount if he signed up for MSN isp program. He was using AOL and I told him sounded good to me. Net price on the camera was $299.

S5000 has higher ISO with lower grain(noise) levels. S5000 has supeiror tonal curve/dynamic range then the c740/c750 as well(This amounts to a more film-like appearance in gradients). Are these important to you?
