I don't think Panny will mess with their formula too much. Panny has been pretty good about valuing their lenses in their higher end cameras (FZ/LX/etc) so I expect the FZ45 to keep a nice fast lens in the 18-20x zoom range. I think if they jump into the 30x zoom market it will be a separate camera, i.e. FZ60 or something with a manual zoom ring to compete with the HS10. The upgrades will probably be along the lines of adding geotagging, some kind of extended dynamic range feature, and a modest mp increase with variable aspect ratios. I also expect them to beef up the video, maybe adding more attachment audio/etc features, some kind of high speed mode, etc.
