Thanks, Sarah Joyce -- I think I'm sold on the FZ35. I really would like a camera that can take good indoor, flashless pictures. Had also been reading about Costco's ZS6 but, as you said, the FZ35 offers much more than any of those ZS cameras. Thanks for helping me make up my mind! Now I guess I also need a 8gb, class 6 memory card? Any brand recommendations? How about extra battery? Can it take an off brand? Would you even recommend an off brand? And what kind of case do you have that can go easily into your purse? Thanks so much for your help!
BTW: I appreciate how this forum is so helpful for people who are not exactly experts! Thanks for the education!
