mystery-

The simple reason that the F30 is better at ISO 800 and above, is that the imager size on the F-30 is considerably larger, than the imager found on the FZ-35.

Thank you for clarification Sarah.
I got that part but I was wondering why Panasonic doesn't match F30's ISO performance on their cameras that are bigger than F30 such as FZ's. If Fuji can put sensor for high ISO on a pocket sized camera, what is Panasonic waiting for?

It all about IMAGER size, the electronic component on which the image is recorded within the camera. It has nothing to do with the physical size of the camera itself.

If FZ had comparable sensor of F30, it'd have been awesome camera to challenge DSLR on all aspects.

The problem is that the design of a super zoom camera requires the use of a smaller imager to make use of all that zoom.

Sarah I'm curious since you brought this up. I don't shoot sports, mainly architecture, nature landscapes and stuff and occasionally some portraits. When do you find a superzoom not enough for your needs, or falling short and needing a dslr?

I'm not asking for reasons to upgrade, but I'm asking for reasons where I should really try and focus to try to get a better shot because the superzoom is hitting its limit where as a dslr would get it much easier in a snap.

I guess I'm not that picky. It looks fine to me -- I especially love that you not only stopped the bike action but also caught some of the individual -- are those raindrops? -- on the way down.
