Hi everyone

I'm looking for someone to tip the balance in favour of the FZ5 for me, I'm finding it a difficult decision :?

I currently have a Hewlett Packard 945, 5mp, 8x optical (owned since October 2003) and although I am still verypleased with the image quality (on the whole) from this camera I have always had reservations about its speed. Focusing is painfully slow sometimes and writing to card can take nearly a minute for a 5 image frame burst :shock:

I don't want to go the Dslr route, I did the maual SLR 17 years ago at the tender age of 13, at that time a steep learning curve, it definetly helped me later on though! Dslr is to bulky for me, I don't want to carry all that gear about anymore, and 80% of my photos today are of my kids anyway, it would wasted in my hands.

I'd just like someone to give me that final nudge to saymoving to the FZ5 would be a worthwhile 'upgrade' from my already 5mp equipped HP945.

Thanks in advance
