I have done extensive research and have settled down on these two cameras b/c the place I have credit does not stock Canon s-50, which would have been my choice. I know some people trash the F-700 but when I look at the photo gallery I see that the dynamic range and resolution is right up there with 5M cameras. Check out these two almost identical original sized pics (don't let the fact that they were shot at different times sway you with the contrast, take that into consideration) Also take a look at the signs and the top of the bridge to determine resolution.

The only thing I agree with is that the fuji does produce a cyan sky but other than that the photos look awesome. If it was just image the cheaper G500 would win out slightly but the Fuji also has a slimmer (though longer) body, nicer flash, Manual control of whiteness and focus, an auto illuminator to help focus, a bigger LCD, a longer lasting proprietary battery, a cradle (though a stand alone charger would allow recharging of one battery while the other is used in the camera), much better movie mode, a case that stays clean, the ability to shot at 800 ISO at full 6M, and slightly faster performance. It also reports less breakdowns. I am open to opinions so anyone can throw in their two cents and it would be appreciated!

I can't comment on the Minolta DiMAGE G500, but I have reviewed the Fuji F700:


It sounds to me as though you have already made your mind up though!

The best thing would be to to visit your local shop and test the 2 cameras out together.
