Just letting you guys know, I went down to my local camera store and put down $600AU for an FZ3 today. Will get it in a couple weeks hopefully. Apparantly they have none left here in australia!??

Also wanted to say thanks to everyone on this site for the information. I came across this site 2 days ago and had no idea what camera I wanted. I just sold my Kodak DX6240 and wanted a replacement that was more "fun". This site helped me narrow it down to either a Canon S1 or Pana FZ3 (I want ultra zoom and IS).

Will post my thoughts on it when I get it....2 weeks is such a long wait.

I think you made the right decision on the FZ3 over the S1 IS. I compared them side by side in the store, and for me it was no contest.

Just got my FZ3 today. Very impressed with how small it is for what it does. Seems like it does a bit more than the Kodak DX6340 I just sold but is easier and more intuitive to use for me. 12x zoom plus IS is fantastic! Love it!

...now if my 1GB 60x SD card would just hurry up and arrive.....
