I'm looking for a camera for my wife. She wantsa point&shoot that she can throw in her purse. Other features I want are a large viewer, and as much zoom as I can get. I saw an article on the R3 but no information on availability or pricing. Has anyone heard anything about this camera? I placed a item in the Ricoh forum but have not had any response yet.

Without a doubt the hidden secret is the Olympus C-5500 with 5mp, 5X optical zoom, full manual controls as well as fully automatic, a 2" LCD, and a low light level focusing lamp. Are you ready for the best news? It is selling on the internet for around $210 (US).

Here is a photo sample from the C-5500.

Thanks for responding so quickly. I looked at Steve's review and it looks okay but I think my wife would like something smaller and some of the newer models have 2.5 and 3.0 inch screens on them. I was amazed at how much more you can see on a 2.5 vs 2.0 screen.
