Because Yashica no long makes the Kyocera M410r, and because it was not a really great digital camera. I know because I own one. I would certainly tend to place the M410r at the very bottom of my priority list.

You mention the Fuji S-5100 and the Olympus C-765. Both are very capable digital cameras, but they do not represent the latest technical advances in digital cameras. Budget allowing, if you went to the new Fuji S-5200 you would have more features, especially a higher ISO capability and a fixed lens that does not have to extend. Like the S-5100, the S-5200 also uses AA size bateries, another bonus.

Here is how I would arrange the priority:

Fuji S-5200

Fuji s-5100

Olympus C-765 (uses a proprietary battery

Kyocera 410r

I would recommend to take a look at something which has IS. It is a nice feature ot have for 10x or higher zoom, unless you want to carry tripod all the time.

I've had an Olympus C-730 (similar to the C-765) for three years and absolutely love it. For about $100 more, the Panasonic FZ5. with image stabilization, is getting great reviews.
