Earlier today, Amazon had the FZ28K for $239.97 (40% savings). Now I checked it and it went up to $279.98 (30% savings). Any idea if the price will continue to go up/down, or will it remain stable? I'm planning on buying mid January, so if anyone has any experience with fluctuations in price, this will be of great help. I know that nothing is certain.

Also, while typing this topic, I stumbled upon a site that is selling it for $199.99. Can someone take a look and tell me if there is anything fishy going on: http://www.buyhi-techcameras.com/paludm.html

Any possible reasons why it might be so cheap??

Thanks.

Probably because it's a scam site. If it sounds too good to be true - it probably is.

B&H Photo has the fz28 for $239.95 with free shipping. I ordered one last night and it has shipped with a delivery date of Friday.

As a diehard Canon user it was a hard choice between the fz28 and the sx10.After a month of reading users opinions and looking at photos on this site I decided on the fz28. Thanks all...can't wait till Friday

prodin, thanks for commenting. I am thinking about purchasing it in a week or so, so hopefully prices remain the same at the site you mentioned.

I purchased a Canon sx10 and sent it back. I've been a diehard canon person until now. Just purchased the Panasonic FZ28 and should get it tomorrow. Really looking forward to it.

Would you like to elaborate WHYyou sent it back - although I have my suspicions...

I am sure it would be interesting to many of us here.

Besides feeling like a brick with a lens mounted to it, it handled much worse in lower light conditions then my S3 did. I got the FZ28 today and so far I really like it.

Hi everyone,



I think the Lumix FZ28 is a very good camera. The handling is great, IQ is good,very usefulzoom range, pricing is reasonable. Most important a very easy camera to use, not to mention about the advance feature if you care to explore the camera further. With very high hit rates, I seldom need to worry about miss shots.

If I nit pick it's the slow focusing at the end of the zoom.

I ordered this camera on December 1st and recieved shipment today.
So far I love it but haven't had much time to play around with it much
Tomorrow and Friday will be when I put it through the paces.
I did take a small movie with it and was amazed by the picture quality of it

Here is a picture of pur cat potter that I did take tonight
