What camera you decide to purchase/keep can pretty much be down to what you're likely to shoot and what feels good in the hand.
The only gripe I have about my SX40 is the shot to shot time,in single shot mode. Waiting for the camera to write a single image to the card takes too long- and sometimes you won't have the luxury to switch to burst mode- the moment may have gone...!
Here's another post regarding shot delays- with the timings from the FZ-150.

If speed is of paramount importance- the FZ-150 is the way to go.
You sacrifice a touch of zoom range though....

I've just found a way of speeding things up even more....
Switch off the image review in the set-up menu (the display of the shot you just took) and the shot to shot times are much,MUCH faster....!
I can't believe I didn't think of that sooner...lol...

I ran into a problem in figuring out how to reset all the settings back to default, but I found my answer online. I didn't realize that I had to use the LCD instead of the viewfinder and then use Menu.
So now I've reset the settings and I've turned off image review, and you're right, it is much, MUCH faster.
Now I can use the AUTO mode without that damn shutter lag or what you call shot to shot times.
You're a lifesaver Simon.
