I would suggest that one waits for actual users to report back and confirm how it performs!!
I've volunteered to be the one of the actual users that reports back. With luck, I'll have mine before I leave for Yellowstone Park on September 7th. The camera will get quite a work out. If I don't have it, I'll manage just fine with my trusty FZ35.

My gut tells me that Panasonic went to school on the efforts of Canon, Sony, Nikon, and Casio's efforts with the CMOS sensor.

Setter Dog, I eagerly await your feedback. I have long learnt to rather hear
what REAL users have to say, rather than the "media" or the so called
"experts"!

Pocket-lint has a brief pre-review of the FZ100. Very high level but worth a look.

I too am very interested to hear how well the MOS sensor performs. Bring on the full blown reviews!

I downloaded two FZ100 pictures from a website, one a 600mm zoom (24X) and the other "intelligent zoom" (32X). Both looked very good to me. When I checked the properties on each, they were both approximately 14megapixels. I had just assumed that after 24X the megapixels would be reduced somewhat, sort of like they are in EZ zoom.

I don't get it,......but I like the idea of full resolution 32X pictures, if that's what this means. Seems like a very nice feature.

Where can I "sign up" to be a volunteer?

Clint, Amazon has a very simple method to sign up volunteers, you just click a button and give them a plastic card.

It would be a pleasure to serve with you in this volunteer Panasonic militia!

Then I have already "volunteered"!!!

I volunteered when I saw it on Amazon - I'm eagerly awaiting my issue of "supplies".

Clint,....my unit is shipping out to Yellowstone Park on Sept 7th. Hopefully, we well have our new FZ100s but we may have to go into the fight with our unit's FZ35s. Still, I do not think we will be outgunned.

Just remember that you have to have a different adapter for the FZ45 and FZ100 to mount the LT-55 and LC-55...the Panasonic DMW-LA5 Adapter

I don't think the IQ is that great on the FZ100 either especially at higher iso's from the samples...but I think part of it is slower shutter speed and they were hand holding the FZ100...the lower iso's and faster shutter speed shots seem OK....I have signed up for the volunteer FZ100 unit also along with Clint and Jack...we can always return them and use the FZ45's we have ordered also...can't wait to get the Nikon TC-E17ED on the FZ45 for 1020mm Super Zoom at full res...
