I am looking for an UZ with a wide ange lens, good low light capability, low noise and excellent image quality. I have narrowed it down to the Fuji s6000 or Panny TZ3. I understand the basic differences b/t these two models and that the Fuji has manual controls, high ISO, longer zoom, but no image stabilization. It is also larger than the pocketable TZ3. Has anyone seen pics for the TZ3? How would you compare these two cameras for my needs, as stated above? Thank you!

BTW, I recently sold my Pentax ist DL and three lenses because I could not get used to DSLR photography and hated lugging around and changing lenses.

The S6000fd will fill your needs perfectly. There's a review for the TZ2 -


In the same site, there's a review for the S6000fd.

It is good to see you posting again. I don't want to rain on your parade, but a good DSLR equipped with a "fast" lens such as the Sigma 30mm F1.4 lens will always beat an ultra zoom camera in a high ISO/Ultra Low light level photo conditions,due to the fact that theDSLR camera has a considerably bigger imager. It is all a matter of physics, Justinian.

Here is a sample photo. It is an ultra low light level, no flashshot thatwas taken with a Nikon D-50 equipped with a Sigma 30mm F 1.4 lens, using just stage lighting only. And yes, I own a Fuji S-6000 as well. My D-50 can beat they S-6000 any day.
