I need a new digital camera with 5 megapixel or less with 24-28mm(35mm equivalent lens) used primarily for interior photos. I can't seem to find any digital cameras with wide angle lenses. Price relevant, but not first priority. Would appreciate recommendations.

The Olympus C-5060 might meet your requirements. If you can tolerate more than 5 M Pixels, the Olympus C-8080 or Nikon Coolpix 8400 might be worth a look.

Similarly, the Konica Minolta A200 is 28mm 8M.

Cheers

You may find it worth waiting a month or so for the Ricoh GR Digital, an 8 megapixel compact which has a 28mm lens (35mm equiv'), with a additional lens which takes the angle of view to 21mm.

A downside is that it may not be available in the USA, for Ricoh's curious marketing reasons.

Canon Powershot Pro 1,

Expensive but has good reviews 28mm-200mm

The new Kodak P880, 24mm - 140mm (don't know when it will be available though)

Cheers Ian

Lots of great suggestions here. You might also want to take a look at the Fuji E510, 5 MP, under $200. Or the E500, 4 MP, under $175.

Thanks for the suggestion, sorry for my delay.

Smaller size & price are leading me toward Canon S60.



Thanks,
