I have only played with the 550, I don't own it. My aunt owns one and I messed with it at the family reunion.
I also like the Canon 710, but I think the option you get the the Olympus 550 is the best for what you have asked for.

I own three cameras:
Canon XT
Olympus E500 (best value for entry DSLR, my opinion)
Olympus E1
