Default Fz38 - fz150?

I am liking the look and reviews of the fz150 but i have the fz38.
Is it worth me going for the FZ150?
If so what are the differences apart from the longer zoom and hotshoe?

If not what would be a decent upgarde?

IMHO there is no worthy and better upgrade to the FZ35 other than the FZ150-if there be someone please show me.

If I had money to spare, I would not hesitate to upgrade my FZ35 to and FZ150. The FZ150 photos I've seen on these forums surpass even my Micro 4/3 GF1.

Got to agree the FZ150 produces some great shots, but in the right hands so can the FZ38, I have thought about an upgrade from a 6 year old FZ50 but I really can't see much advantage, It boils down to what you shoot and how financial you are. I have seen some of your photo's, and could not fault them, so I guess it is only you that can decide. Whichever way you go I wish you luck.

Eysha the camera is just a tool you carry in your hands. The most important thing is what's outside the camera.

My 'heartfelt' comment is please don't waste money chasing the advertiser's 'dream camera' ~ your imagination will determine your results > the camera only records ...
