We compared all the other 3" screen cameras to this camera and we think the Stylus SH-50, and the SH-21 both from Olympus or the Sony SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a larger display diagonal then you might also want to look at the Nikon D4S ($4,200) (3.2"), the Leica T ($1,118.24) (3.7"), or the Samsung EK-GC100 (4.8") which also has a higher rating.
