Yeah, one thing to look out for is that not all rail-to-rail op-amps support the full voltage on both input and output. Quite a lot of them are only rail-to-rail outputs, and assume that you'll be using some gain. Thus, a voltage follower is going to work very poorly with those select chips.

Always check the data sheets carefully and thoroughly.

>> The ones for ADCs have FET output stages so they'll happily go all the way to zero accurately and pretty near to the positive rail.  And many ADCs don't go all the way up to 5V anyway as they need some headroom for the internal op-amp on the voltage reference
