This is very true, John. I explored the possibilities of superzoom indoor action photography myself when I posted these from my Kodak Z712 (roughly comparable to the FZ28) a couple of years ago...

As the action there was nothing like as active as Ellandry's dancing I'm pretty confident I couldn't have done any better than his/her FZ28 shots.

That said, some of my shots of the choir stood up well against the top-notch Nikon kit of the retired professional photographer friend I'd taken along to do the job properly (especially the formal choir shots). I was astonished just recently to see one of mine used in the choir's publicity posters, still with its horrible yellow cast from the horrifically mixed lighting types.

A shot without blur bot poor noise and no detail is still a poor shot. You can still choose to take the shot but it wont be quality.
