Have a look at the review of the new Fujifilm FinePix F10 at dpreview.com.

I want this sensor with a 12x zoom F2.8 lens! 8)

Just read the review seems to be a cracker of a compact camera - I was shocked that it could go up to ISO1600! The CCD's larger than the one in the FZ's - 1/1.7" it would be fab to see this paired up with the FZ10/15/20's lens - even if it meant making the cam larger. I had a look at an Oly 8080 and that is a big digicam, bigger than the FZxx. Lets hope we see an FZ with ISO 1600 and LEica designed lens soon !!

If you just put 4 MP on the chip instead of 6.3 MP, similar results could be possible with a 1/2.5" chip.

If Panasonic could use something along these lines and retain f2.8, 12x zoom, OIS and compact size by keeping megapixels down they could compete with entry level DSLR and maybe be cheaper in the long run. Hard to tell what Panasonic is thinking in this current climate fast moving camera design.

http://www.digitalcamerainfo.com/con...ra-Review-.htm
"The Fujifilm F10 surprised us with an overall manual ISO noise score of 11.42. Most compact models score in the 4-5 range on this test, so reaching this level is pretty unbelievable. Images are virtually noise-free and they rival SLR photos. The F10 displayed less noise using its ISO 1600 than any camera released this year that we have tested at ISO 400 (including the Canon PowerShot SD500, the Konica Minolta Z5 [at ISO 320], the Kodak Z740, Panasonic FZ5, etc.)"

If Panasonic could somehow give us this kind of high iso use, the FZ line would really be amazing. Pretty please, Panasonic.

Fugi already makes a 1/2.7" super ccd. It was announced in 2003.

http://www.steves-digicams.com/pr/fuji_01222003_pr.html

"A 1/2.7" version of the Super CCD HR incorporates 3.14 million total pixels, for 6.0 million recording pixels. In addition to greatly enhanced resolution, sensitivity has also improved over the third-generation technology."

Fugi has a patent on this ccd so Panasonic would have to develop it's own. Nevertheless the technology is there to create the kind of superzoom we are looking for. Who will be first?:arrow:
