I want to buy a camera with a built in wide angle lens with full manual controls.

I was considering the Canon S70, but now I'm leaning towards the Olympus C7070 due to some of the extra features it seems to have.

Background: A few months ago, my Canon S100 broke. I've always had an interest in learning more about photography and learning how to use manual controls to control depth-of-field, etc. But I wasn't sure if I'd really learn how to use the manual controls, so I bought a Sony P200 for a good take-everywhere camera and I absolutely love it. I decided if I was still interested in the manual controls, that I'd get another camera later and each would serve their own purpose. Since then I've bought some excellent photography books andlearned a lot and now I want the manual controls. (If I'm going to buy another camera, it must have a built-in wide angle lens.)

Any advice for me?

The C7070 is an outstanding camera in it's class. I think you would enjoy owning it.

Thanks for the feedback. I had already read those reviews and that's why I'm still so interested in it.

Do you have the 7070? I was hoping to find out some comments from people that have it.

I'm leaning more towardsthe Oly7070than the Canon S70. Unfortunately I can't find the Oly 7070 anywhere in my town to hold it.
