Congratulations on getting your "uzi upgrade", Diane. Glad to see you're so delighted with the fz3. Panasonic really has done a wonderful job with the fz series. The Lieca lens isvery close to the superior quality of the uzi's. The one slight shortcoming of the fz series vs the uzi is macro capabitiy. Whereas the uzi has macro functionality throughout the zoom, the fz macro is essentially disabledbeyond 3x zoom. Fortunatley, this is completely overcome with the use of a close-up lens or macro converter such as the oly b-macro (which I happened to have from my uzi days). See http://www.ishots.net/fz1-2faq/fz1macros.htmHappy snappin!

Didn't know you had an UZI, Fred. If there's one camera I would love to fool around with for a few hours, it's the UZI. I can't believe how much they go for used on eBay, and how many folks bid on them (if you can find one).

Must be a helluva camera, they are legendary.

Yep... 16 bidders, ~ $350 clams (US) with shipping. Not bad for a 1.5 to 2.0 (I think there were two models...) mgpx camera.
