I would like to see a larger sensor to reduce noise at higher resolutions. A TTL hotshoe would also be nice.

TTL Hotshoe

Larger sensor (but then larger lens)

NO MORE MPs

LCD Gain-up OR an EVF/Optical viewfinder (3x magnification for the opti). Either of these would solve the low-light problems as most low-lights with which I have trouble are portraits with low/no zoom.

+ More accurate white balance.

+ a Super Fine JPEG mode (lower compression)

I don't think it will matter to me because unless Panasonic issues a patch to correct the "red tinge" issue I won't be interested in another Panasonic.

I've had my FZ20 all of 3 weeks and 1100+ shots and that one issue has dampened the fun factor of the camera for me.

I have yet to take it out for pictures of my daughter playing soccer where I wish to test the zoom and burst mode capabilities. If it doesn't do well there I will likely be selling it this summer.

Basically, the Digilux 2 body/layout with the Lumix zoom capabilities and a ttl hotshoe... AND EVF GAIN UP! AND FLEXIBLE/TWISTABLE LCD DISPLAY! (Should have that now...) Now there's a sweet camera to compete with the (coming soon) $500 DSLRs.

1. No raw file, too large to use on burst mode for macro.

2, No dedicated hot shoe, manual flash for macro only.

3. Less than 6 megapixel with less noise for macro.

4. Distance scale should only be for macro ratio.

5. No autofocus, not good for macro.

6. Price tag $1,500 if its good for macro.

7.No trade in program, after much macro use, it looks likesheeeeettt.

8. Faster burst speeds for macro.

9. Filter thread on lens for macro use.

10. Flip over Nikon 6T for macro

11.Switch to turn pre-flash off for using other flash units for macro.

Well how different are we huh :-)

Danny.

Better display(s) (that gain up)

Movable LCD

8MP (but if not, no biggie)

Larger sensor (CMOS or CCD), and I don't care if the lense weighs 10 lbs.

Ability to save multiple settings and switch to them quickly

Lapse time mode

Ability to do IR

Additional IS mode for people like me who drink coffee by the pot full

Higher ISO (up to 1600 would be nice)

Longer shutter (at least double)

Do away with the movie mode (save a little cost)

I would pay $1,000.00 for it
