Default upgrading camera

I am ready to upgrade my fuji 2600 2.0 mp camera. I really want to make this my last digital camera for a while. Im looking for something that has a good zoom or that I can add lenses to. I want to be able to print 8x 10 photos as well. The camera should also have minimal delay in shutter speed . I have read a lot of reviews and opinions on different sights. I originally was going to purchase a canon G3 but as I did more research I had a list of cameras to decide from. One was the fuji 602. I never really looked at any minoltas until I saw the review here. I like the look and specs of the z1 and a1 although the cost may prevent me from thinking about these. I may wait until Oct for the fuji s 7000 as well. My other question is why to these camera manufacturers put a large zoom but only 3 mega pix as opposed to 4 or 5. At least thats what it seems to me. i know I asked a lot but like I said I dont want to be buying a new camera in 2 years.

have you thought of a dslr?? they offer all sorts of interchangeable lenses and syuff and from what i understand, the shutter lag is no more than a 35mm slr. they are a lot more expensive but, will last you many years.

Default New camera

I've just posted a question about what camera to upgrade to. My message seems very similar to yours. Have a look at the cameras I've suggested. Would appreciate a reply about what you finally choose.
(My message is 2 above yours)
