Visiting Lindsay wildlife museum in Walnut Creek, CA this weekend and used the High Sensitivity mode for some iso3200 shots. The results surprised me.

Check out the set on flickr for all shots iso100 to iso3200.

This is an example of a iso3200 shot of a Swainson's Hawk

Great examples

Some of the things the FZ18 can doare really wonderful........and some things are not.

Those shots are something my FZ30 would really struggle with, in fact they would require a flash....... But some photos especially landscapes I much prefer the FZ30 shots over the FZ18...... I would really like a FZ30 with some of the tricks of the FZ18...And I do not need or want the WA.

I tend to agree. The FZ18 does better in high sensitivity mode at 3200 than it does at say iso800. The pixel binding actually works in contrast to my FZ7 which is useless in HS mode and pretty much useless above iso200. I do actually like the 28mm lens but would love a Nikon D40x for landscapes only. I'll keep birding with the FZ18, I have no desire to carry a heavy camera or have lots of equipment.
