iPhoto is a database eith built-in image viewer, version control and lightweight editing. It's not just an image viewer, and not for everyone.
I like PhotoPresenter http://www.arizona-software.ch/applications/photopresenter/en/
I also find Caffeine Browser useful:
ANd Graphic Convertor is a wonderful app, with significant editing capabilites and an excellent built-in browser.
I REALLY like the QuickImage CM from Pixture Studio. You can use the finder to browse through thumbnails and just Ctrl+click/right click to get a "View Image" command, which shows just about any image or PDF very quickly. You can select a series of images and scroll through them one by one (again, with speedy loading times). It also offers a few basic image editing tools like brightness/contrast, HSL, cropping and resizing, etc. This functionality can be expanded by the QuickPDF CM, PhotoTool CM, and QuickPlay CM. I actually HIGHLY recommend it for any mac user.

you might want to look at vitaminSEE, too. it's free. works well. but it isn't my ultimate solution. i keep waiting for xnview to come out with UB for mac version cuz that was my favorite image viewer for windows. nothing like it that i've found so far but vitaminSEE is my favorite of what i've seen out there.

I recommend Graphic Converter:
It has a nifty "Image Browser" mode that I find indispensible. You can edit IPTC fields easily within Image Browser, and many other features.
The programmer, Thorsten Lemke, is very responsive to user feature requests.
GC does cost a few dollars but over the year's it's been well worth it.
You are mistaken. If you do a slide show via Preview, it definitely has next and back buttons. If you just select all the photos you want to view in the Finder and double-click on them, Preview will open.
You can also add next and back buttons to Preview's tool bar by pulling down the view menu and dragging those buttons to the tool bar. If you quit and restart Preview, the buttons will remain on the tool bar.
