Just sold an Olympus C-8080WZ because it was really too much work to get great pics. Way too much camera for my wife and I. After reading review after review of various digicams, I'm leaning towards one of the Lumix Super Zooms, most probably the one of the two in the above subject.

While pricing on eBay, I'm seeing both the DMC-FZ7 *and* the DMC-FZ7K listed. However, I cannot find the difference between the two models. Does anyone here know what (if any) the difference is?

Just for the record, I'm looking for a super zoom style digital with image stabilization. Low noise overall and ease of taking great pics. I seldom print the images, but will ocassionaly. Also, there will be the ocassional action shot.

Is there another Lumix better suited to what I'm trying to do?

Thanks in advance for ANY suggestions!

Steve

DMC-FZ7S is silver and DMC-FZ7K is black, DMC-FZ7 can be black or silver.

I am not sure Ebay is the place to be shopping for cameras...

A FZ5 or FZ30 will meet your needs also.

Quite right Gene!

New camera prices on Ebay are, for the most part, greatly inflated......sometimes higher than list prices!
The assumption being that if it's listed on Ebay....it must
be cheaper.

The prices listed on Steve's review site are very good......with user review ratings listed for the sellers; so it's less of a crapshoot!
