LT - have you tried these settings?

When I had the FZ100 I set the NR to the plus side on a few shots and it seemed to help.

I still find the FZ100 IQ to be just OK. IMO, the FZ35 beats it by a large margin.

My 2 cents
Using a wider aperture would make the object of your interest in focus while keeping the other distracting things blurred. Manual focus would be required.
A CPL would get rid of the sunlight reflections and saturate the colors.
Keep ISO limit to 80 or 100. would help with the noise.

I agree with Tullio-

The FZ-35 is clearly the better camera. The FZ-100 and FZ-40 with their reduced image quality and high ISO settings problems just do not cut it.

Oh please Honey Dew - No I cantaloupe with you!

That being said------ the image quality was the main problem I was battling.
However you are getting better pictures than I was. Did you ever try setting the noise reduction to the plus 2 side? I know it sounds contrary but it did seem to help in a few of my pictures with the "Big Fuzzy".

Interesting you mentioned that, Clint. This is exactly what I do with my FZ28 and it does help. NR has a bad rep (with reason). But, since the camera offers adjustments at no extra cost, why not play with them to see what kind of results they produce, right?!? It's not that I have to pay for development!!!
