Do you think that the new Dimage Z3 will compete with the Panasonic FZ10? It seems that on all the wildlife photography boards, people's photos are primarily taken with the PFZ10. I do not see many at all from Z1 or Z2. Do you think that now with the release of the Z3, that it could truly compete with the Panisonic. Both will now have 12X.

I'm not sure, but the FZ10 is in a different class costwise, so it ought to be better I'd say.
At least here in Denmark there's a difference in price of approximately the equivalent of $230 between Z3 and FZ10.

The Z3is f4.5 at 12X compared to f2.8 on the FZ10. That is over an f-stop. You can shoot in more situations without a tripod with the FZ10 when using telephoto. The FZ10 is bulky and has a poor flash.

The FZ-10 does have stabilisation, but it will shortly be replaced by the fz-20. 5mp ccd + focus assist lamp including the stabilisation.

Yes you are right they are not quite in the same price bracket, but the Z3 & the FZ-20 are not exactly apples for apples. Each have features that may be of more benifit to you than the other.

The Z3 has a higher res video mode, the FZ-20 has F2.8 lens thru to full zoom.

Theres other points as well.
