I'm upgrading from a Panasonic FZ 10 to something new. My choices Nikon D 50 (good, entry DSLR, kinda expensive, requires multiple lens) Panasonic FZ 30 (great new features, tested one in a Wolf Camera though I would buy online and save hundreds, manual zoom, seems ok) Fuji FinePix S9000 Digital Camera (best - 9 mp, great reviews, won award in 05, no need for multiple lens, added cf card, microdrive, and seems the best choice.) Hmm. I know there's a hardcore Nikon crew here, not many panasonic owners I don't think. I haven't heard from anyone who owns a Fuji.
