My next camera will be the FZ150; as I love the long telephoto lens! I've had such exceptional results using the FZ40; that I know the 150 will be even better!

Do you think though it can be used as your only camera? Not sure about the low light capability or IQ, especially compared to the LX5.

I've used the FZ40 as my only camera, taking great night scenes, macro closeups, and all around photography. I could want for nothing more.

It simply would boil down to what type of photography a person likes.

No real special focus; looking for something that will be a well rounded performer for any type of situations that may arise.

I have both camera's. Which do I prefer, both, Depending on where I am going I really like the smallness of the LX-5 for indoor events where it is close and I can keep it on my belt. The 150 I also like for its extended zoom, for events in bigger areas.
I am not a master of either camera I also have a DSLR for artsy stuff. I am not a master at that either.

So I'm sure this babble was of no help at all, sorry
