Looks like the reviewers aren't quite in unison about the FZ30's noise issue and image quality. This shutterbug reviewer sees a noticableimprovement in the FZ30 over previous versions:

Look for the FZ30 review at the bottom of the page and then continue on the next page. I guess it is all in the eye of the beholder. This one acutally rates the FZ30 as the best among its competitors at ISO400.



Quote:

Among the five cameras tested, the Lumix DMC-FZ30 was the most impressive, generating beautiful images at all apertures and focal lengths. Shadow and highlight detail are also very good, although the images are quite contrasty. The automatic noise reduction system does produce a slight loss of the most intricate detail at ISO 400. Still, the 8-megapixel Lumix FZ30 produced the best results of all cameras tested at ISO 400.

Thats a pretty good review of the 30 - well writtena d fairly impartial. I do wish he had shown side by side crops of each cam's pict quality at the different ISO's.
The only other thing was that he didn't include the Fuji 9500/9000 in the review.

3 cheers for the FZ30!!

Although I agree with this review, it seems like there is a lot of politics, and probably a lot of cash, behind some of these reviews, especially the ones that put the FZ30 down ! Jim

Well I agree with them, but I do not suppose that surprised anyone.
