Just looking at the specs, I don't see a huge difference between the FZ10 and the FZ15. Anyone able to tell me the major differences ?

I think you should look for previous posts (like, from 13 months ago), I think there were broad discusions on the subject when the FZ15 came out.

I have an FZ10, and from what I remember, the main differences are:

* The FZ15 does not allow you to use an external flash.
* The FZ15 has ISO 80 where the FZ10 has ISO 50; although Panasonic (the member of the forum) told me (if I remember correctly) that due to new noise reduction sytems in the FZ15 the noise is the same in both.
* The FZ15 has something called "Venus Engine", which was apparently an improvement although I do not remember what did it actually do.
* The FZ10 does record audio, but I think the FZ15 does not.
* Can you still find a FZ10 for sale?

As I told you, try to look in the previous threads... or hopefully, somebody who owns both cameras will answer you more accurately.

Thanks, that's what I'm looking for. I can read Panasonic's specs of the 2 camera's, but I'm looking for some real user input.

What I read on the FZ15 impresses me, I am curious as to what was improved on it as compared to the FZ10.

I haven't seen a new FZ10(nor a FZ15). I'm looking on eBay - a lot of people must have received new cameras for xmas, because I'm seeing more FZ15's and FZ10's for sale.
