Default Which camera?

I have been reading many reviews and camera shopping for about three months. I thought that I had got my list down to a few choices. I was looking into the Olympus 4040 and even considered holding out for the E-10 or 20. Then, I spoke with a gentleman from Ritz Camera and he told me he doesn't recommend Olympus as they have the hightest rate of returns for repairs. Is this true? I thought about the Canon G2 and even wondered about the new Nikon 5700? I do want a hot shoe so that I can attach a flash when needed. A zoom lens would be nice as I like to take all types of photographs. The guy at Ritz wanted me to consider the Minolta camera and Canon printer. I even looked at Sony's but wasn't sure how limited I would be having to use a memory stick only. Also, I currently have an Epson 880 printer and I must say the photo prints lack some quality even on the highest setting. Can anyone recommend a printer that doesn't cost a fortune. I appreciate any feedback that anyone has to offer.

Default Have you looked at the Nikon 4500?

Take a good look at the Coolpix 4500. I ordered one and have played with it almost every day of the week at my dealer.

It has a fantastic macro, tons of accessories including telephoto lenses, fisheye slide copier and a soon to be released "Cool Light" for macro work.

The swivel is something that you would love, and it's flexibility is superb. The features are hard to beat!
