Simon, those photos look great, so clear and colourful. Unfortunately i don't think i can still buy that little camera now. Any idea what the updates are like for taking good shots? I am still looking for a small camera. Have been thinking of the tz18 but also the canon you mentioned too.
Panasonic FZ200 + Panasonic FZ38 + Macro & Tele Kit (DMW-LC55 + DMW-LT55 + DMW-LA5)
Canon 60D +18-55mm lens+ 70-300mm lens.
