Hi All

Dpreview has 10 new cam's listed on dpreview.com from Panasonic, inc an FZ8 and a TZ2/TZ3. Sorry for the mistake on the title - I hadn;t realised that some of the cam's are two versioned - a 7.2Mp and a 6MP cam's.

Cheers

HarjTT

I was just looking at the new announcement and I don't think there is an upgrade to the FZ-50 as I did not see a camera with manual controls, etc! I still like my FZ-30.

Hi Annie, Donna

Annie, your Fz30's a fine cam and any replacement won;t be due until Aug/Sept. They usual debut the FzX's and other pocket cams this time of year but I've never seen this many. Plus we may see a lower end DSLR from pana as well.

Cheers

That strange text is the result of using a translator for the Lumix Japanese page.

Only one sample photo so far.
