I compared the Olympus Stylus 760 with the Nikon S200 for a day - both are around the $170 mark. The Olympus is larger and heavier. While the Olympus has mechanical image stabilization and the Nikon doesn't, the Nikon's better AF vastly outweighed this advantage. The Olympus AF mechanism filed to set the focus correctly 9 times out of 10 in macro mode in poor light conditions. After hunting for a second it gave up and seemed to pick a distance at random (infinity?).
