This is my first time posting. I LOVE this site!

Anyhow, here is the issue: For a little over a year I have had a Konika-Minolta Dimage Z1 (my first digital camera), then later upgraded to a Z3. I am EXTREMELY happy with my Dimage Z series cameras so far. REcently, my grandmother decided that she wants a digital camera. I decided I would just give her my Z3 and upgrade to a newer Z series model. However, after reading the reviews on the Z6 on Steve's page and dcresource.com, I have some doubts. According to these reviews the Z6 has "softer" (blurier?) pictures than even the Z5 did, and Steve seems to recommend the Z5 over the Z6. However, I am having a hard time even finding a good deal or many dealers at all offering the Z5 new (all the Z5deals cheaper than the Z6 deals I find at all are for referbished ones with a shorter warranty). I did have to send in my original Z1 for repair once, so the warranty is important to me. I take lots of nature pictures and use the zoom and macro settings extensively, so picture quality is important.

Any suggestions on what I might do, or where I might get a good deal on a NEW Z5?

You can pick up the Panasonic FZ5 at Vann's for $349.98 with FREE SHIPPING. This camera is on sale there and normally sells for $429.98, so this is a great deal. I paid $372.00 and thought that was good, but the price on this model is going up again. I would grab it while you can since they only have two more in stock. It comes in silver or black and the price is the same. Believe me, you can trust Vann's. I just purchased two audio speakers from them and they were just great. Here is a link:
