Battery Olympus Evolt

Battery Olympus Evolt
Okay, so I need a Digital Camera ………….?

I do not care what it looks like the camera, or the weight of the lens, or how many MP have. I want a camera with good battery life and a good zoom feature. Of course, very clear images are a must, and would be great if it could withstand a fall. Preferably something I can get for under $ 400 on eBay, although I have seen a few more expensive models. Some I'm considering: HP Photosmart R927, Olympus SP-550 UZ, Olympus Evolt, Sony H5/H9 Cybershop. What do you suggest?

I have a Kodak for $ 50 .. which is 5 megapixels
