Perhaps an Infinity Super Zoom 300 or 330.  These get some wildly different
prices here in Las Vegas.  I hestitated a hour too long for a 300 at $69.
Since then I have seen them from $119 to $199, except for a $100 one with
clouded viewfinder at a Santa Maria, CA flea market.  (They are still sitting
there, too).  Considering a used IS-1 sells for about $149, older 300 or 330's
above $119 aren't bargains, IMHO.  But then, I'm not The Olympus Guy and I
live in Vegas, so take my ramblings with a grain of salt.
