Fz100 shots are much better now, a bit of in camera tweaking and we'll be there, can't wait for mine to turn up.

Yes, but compare at ISO400 then ISO800...we aren't out of the woods yet...my FZ35's look better everyday!!! LOL...BUT the big comparision for me was the apples to apples:
Compare the Fuji HS10 Sample to the Panasonic FZ100...daylight and dark, Panasonic has capitalized and increased IQ...it will be a very good macro camera I'm sure...the FZ100 should be a very decent fast shooter which is what I want it for...but the IQ drop as the ISO increases? Hope we can tweak it to get better high ISO shots at least to ISO800?

What I really liked on the HS10 was the manual Zoom lens in place of a lever...hope they improve that unit also...

Default I'm still going to wait this one out!

To get to grips with what is going on with the FZ100 I think one probably needs to
understand what the new Panasonic MOS (CMOS) sensor is all about. This is not going to
provide the same type of performance and results as the CCD sensor in the FZ38/35.
The MOS heritage and original design is one developed by Panasonic for video
cameras. For compatibility, one should rather compare the FZ38/35 to the FZ45/40
which has the same CCD technology, but with a slightly increased density. I still
maintain that one is going to have to probably wait a bit longer before the jury is out on
the FZ100s ability to produce still shots Its video capability will in all probability be
outstanding.

Correct db...thats why I stated apples to apples...the Fuji HS10 has a MOS Sensor also...as well as some of the other P&S's...if you compare the samples of the HS10 to the FZ100 you can see Panasonic has really done their homework for the lower ISO's...but I thought the whole reason for going to a MOS was better low light performance?

Anyway I still can't wait to give it a try...
