if this is anyting like the fz30 it will be great.

i had a lot of camera in my time so far, and by far my panasonic one is the best.

the only camera in my mind better then this will be the SLR ones, but you need to buy the lens for the range on the zoom

A good deal for a good camera.

It can be bought here:buyacamera.co.uk/xse…T9w for £214.99. Not sure what the postage is from this site though.

For a bit more money, you could get a Nikon D40, which would take better shots, but you'd have to spend a fortune on a lense which would compete with the zoom on the Panasonic.

Just ordered one of these last night (before I spotted this thread) - read lots of reviews about superzooms before settling on this one, which semed to cope best with the problems that might occer with such a large zoom ( DSLRs excepted of course).

One thing not mentioned in many of the reviews is that the optical zoom can be even higher than x18 of you reduce mega pixel setting as follows:-

4:3 Aspect Ratio: 23x for 5Mega, 28.7x for 3Mega, 2Mega, 0.3Mega,
3:2 Aspect Ratio: 23x for 4.5Mega, 28.7x for 2.5Mega,
16:9 Aspect Ratio: 23x for 3.5Mega, 28.7x for 2Mega

Also worth noting is that Play.com have a 4GB SDHC Memory card on offer for £8.99:-
