    Part of me hopes not.

    There's not a whole lot you can do creatively with S and A on such a small sensor. Instead Panasonic offers intelligent settings, maximum ISO, minimum shutter speed, for the...

    Uh, even Google shopping??? Are you under the impression that Google shopping just scans high priced and reliable resellers????? The only place selling the camera for that low is a "business" with...

    You aren't making sense. You want to buy an LX3 which is $430 if you can find it, but a G1 which is $599 on Amazon right now is 'way too expensive'? You don't care about IQ, but you are looking at...

    Costco has the Sony H10 for $179. That's a pretty fine deal, although it may be more of a camera than you are looking for (size wise).

    Yes, Tim, that is what they say. There is a problem here that is only exerbated by explaining it, so I thought it better simply to toss my observation out there. I've never used either camera, and...

    A lot of people consider the Panasonic LX3 to be the current compact IQ champ in its range, 24mm to a short 60mm.

    Birding is a special challenge beyond the usual caveats about low light and so forth. Even if you get close to a small bird, you still need a long zoom. The Panasonic FZ-50 with its self-contained...

    The LX3 is an exceptional camera with two notable limitations: it's expensive and it doesn't have a telephoto range. My point about film ISO and fixed lens compacts is that people have used far more...

    grain of salt

    I have never owned a Fuji, an SLR, or the LX3. I have never sat down an compared images between cameras. However, I have kept up with the conversations, and would caution you that Beowulff's...

    Actually the FZ28 and TZ5 have the same size sensor, but the FZ28's lens is faster.

    New P&S have far less shutter delay than they used to, although you will still run into problems with making...

    Just another note since I was looking at it...not real hard though...

    It seems like there are some very attractive prices on the E-420, in part because it is losing out to the E-520 which has in...

    I'm no comparator-warrior, but I'd be surprised if any difference between the G1 and E420 is much more than NR choices. They have the same sized sensor and speed of (kit) lens.

    Sarah,
    I won't patronize you, as you might well be able to explain this all better than I can. But for the benefit of Blondie621 and the conversation, here goes.

    You cannot buy a DSLR that has the features of a G1. That's why the demand for the camera is so high among enthusiasts. Once they all buy theirs, the price will come down. It's starting to fall...

    I'm curious why it's never pointed out that DSLR's are bifurcated themselves. You have 4/3 and APS formats in the entry level bodies, and whopping 35mm full frame on the other end. The price...

    Yes, it's a good choice. Now that Christmas purchases are over, the price is beginning to fall. You can buy it for $600 on eBay. Why the doubts about Panasonic? They make some special cameras. ...

    You should certainly take a look at the Panasonic Lumix G1.

    It will just be barely in your budget if you look around. You can grow with the system, which, should, be less expensive than DSLR...

    it's called DARK!

    I'm an excited owner of a new Lumix G1. I've never owned an SLR. I started with a Pentax PC35AF with it's cute, detachable AA powered film drive, which took some great shots,...

    TZ-5 slam dunk. You have the light (it's in Arizona isn't it?) so you can take full advantage of the 10x. Plus it's a really neat camera anyway...
