Both of these models appear to give very little in manual control. They are both considered "point and shoot". Although, this is not necessarily a bad thing, if you don't want to learn how to make adjustments yourself, you can simply let the camera do the work.

Once concern that I would have, is their lack of adjustable ISO speed (the sensitivity of the CCD Sensor to light).

So, you could not force the camera to use a faster shutter speed in lower light (to help prevent motion blur from camera movement, since slower shutter speeds would be used to insure proper exposure of the image).

Since the Olympus Auto ISO appears to go a little higher (the Minolta is limited to ISO 200, and the Olympus Auto ISO will adjust from 50 to 320, depending on for lighting conditions), I'd probably be inclined to go with the D-540. Although, higher ISO Speeds will result in higher noise (similiar to film grain), sometimes higher noise is preferrable to motion blur in lower lighting conditions.
