I still haven't decided which "serious" camera to buy, but I decided to upgrade my P&S from the FX7(3x zoom) to a new LZ2(6x zoom). Easier for my big hands to hold, as well.
Onecall.com had it for $299 with free shipping, no tax. I ordered it at 3:00pm and at 5:30 it had already been picked up by Fedex with a delivery date on Friday. I have ordered stereo componants from them before, and next to newegg.com, they are my favorite online reseller.
Now I have to decide which AA batery recharger to buy.
Oh, I will probably be putting the FX7 on Ebay next week with a case and extra battery.
