Default Olympus C-4000... Good choice?

I like the 3:2 option and that it can take pictures in TIFF format, and it supports EXIF 2.2. Plus, it can be found for $327.

Anything better ($400max, well, I guess $500 suggested retail since it can be found cheaper online) with the above features?

The price is right and the quality is also. See Steve's 4 mp camera pics for this year and the C4000 is listed.

I don't think there's anything better for the price, or even close to the price. Be sure to check the seller reviews at a place like pricegrabber.com or resellerratings.com before buying online.

I just bought a C4000 a week ago. I also saw some prices listed in the range you mentioned but read nothing but bad things about the companies selling the cameras. Grey market, 2nd hand, no shipping without purchase of overpriced accessories, etc.

I checked out everyone I could at:

After readinf and reading reviews, I have kinda upgraded.... Canon PowerShot G2. New Technology, RAW format and IBM microdrive, I am sold. I am so tempted to order NOW, but probably after christmas.

$559 from a trusted place (HarmonyComputers, the place I bought a Fuji a303 from for christmas present for our best friend and bestman).

Or $514 + $25 shipping from DBuys.com, which is rated pretty good too.
