Default Choice of new Digicam

Hi guys. Hope someone can help please.

I'm a fairly enthusiastic 35mm user with a decent EOS outfit. However for convenience I'm going to trade them in and have narrowed the choice to the following.

Fuji S602
Nikon 5700
Minolta 7i
Sony 717

I'm tempted by the Fuji with its slightly longer optical zoom but is there any noticable difference in the image quality these provide?

Thanks in advance.

I personally would foreget both the Sony and the Fuji.

I would make my choice among the Nikon or the Minolta. And that would be a very difficult choice !

(Got a CP5700 already)

Read the tests here at the reviews and certainly read the reviews at Phil Askeys
www. dpreview.com

Good luck!

dod,
If you follow Klaus DK's advice, the choice should be easier because the 5700 and the D7i are very different .
- D7i =manual zoom, CP5700=motorized zoom
- different batteries
- different zoom range
- CP5700 is black, D7i is silver ( D7Hi is black)
- D7i is called "noisy" but preserves details, CP5700 give you pic " la Nikon" (noise reduction already done and color a bit more saturated , a bit red tendency ( my own perception)
- Both D7i and CP5700 have complains about autofocus in low light (look at forums), so test them yourself and make your own conclusion.
- Ergonomic : must handle them to judge ...

... what else ?
