a friend has the chance to buy in very good condition one of these three.Canon g3, canon a75 or a Fuji S602. He likes to use manual mode and experiment. Which would be the better choice:?

If you have the $'s, a nice medium priced camera newis the Minolta Z2. The Z2 has a 4 mp camera with a nice lens (some aspheric glass) with a 10x zoom, has full manual controls, and an exceptional movie mode. I think its quite an upgrade over either the G3 or the S602.

thanks guys. He has the chance to these cheap private sale in exellent condition.I dont want to infulence him as I own a G3 and love it. I do like the look of the fugi as well, it appears to zoom in further than my G3 and ive seen photos taken by it. It also cropped the photos in the camera which mine does not do. I dont think thats a big issue for him though.:-)
