I can' t decide between Canon PowerShot S500, Casio Exilim Z55 or Pentax Optio S5i

Any suggestions?

Here is a side-by-side comparison. Just looking at the specs...

The S500 has a larger sensor so it is likely to have less noise. It also has a better continuous mode, better movie mode (although quite limited), and video out.

The other two have manual focus (although I imagine it is somewhat limited). The Casio and Pentax also have brighter lens (this is a good thing).

Casio has a much bigger LCD (although it has lower resolution).

hmm... I am GUESSING that pic quality will be better on the Canon... but the Casio has cooler features (like the 2.5" LCD)... I don't like these models (I prefer ones like Canon SD300, Panasonic FX7, Sony W1, etc) but if I were to go with one of these, I would probably pick the Canon S500...
