Default Do I need the fz-40

Was thinking of purchasing a fz-40.Need it primarily for flower photography.I was wondering what other model would give similar quality photos without the huge zoom.I currently have a dmc-fz7 which is good but family members keep it busy and out of reach. Thanks

Panasonic FZ-40 is not a Digital SLR.

This question woudl probably have a better response if it was in the "Digital Camera (Point and Shooot)" section.

fz40 is a great all round camera and you'll be more than impressed with its flower shooting capabilities even if its not a dslr. in fact i think some dslr user's may feel threatened by the potential of recent "point and shoot" superzoom cameras. i know several serious photographers already using their fz much more than their dslr camera. but dnas is correct, we have a very helpful "point and shoot forum for panasonic/leica, pop along and repost your question for some more friendly feedback

best regards
john
