Hi serabell,

When you say you want a 12x zoom, what is the total zoom range you are looking for? For example, a 28mm lenswith a 12x zoom will givea totalof 336mm, whereas a 36mm lens with a 10x zoom will give a total of 360mm. In other words, a wider lens with a greater zoommultipliercan actualy give you a shorter zoom than a narrower lens with greater zoom multiplier.

I'd say the closest to what you are looking for in the Panasonic DMC-TZ1, which has 5mp and 35mm lens with a 10x zoom, and is somewhat pocketable.
